                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Un blog, o en español llamado también una “bitácora”, es un sitio web normalmente actualizado que recopila cronológicamente textos o artículos de uno o varios autores. Aparece primero el más reciente, donde el autor conserva siempre la libertad de dejar publicado lo que crea conveniente. El término “blog” proviene de las palabras “web” y “log” (‘log’ en inglés significa “diario”). Y es importante mencionar que el término “bitácora”se utiliza preferentemente cuando el autor escribe sobre su vida propia como si fuese un diario, pero publicado en Internet en línea.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Una definición general de lo que es un blog se podría resumir en lo siguiente:

  • generalmente presentan contenidos en orden cronológico.

  • normalmente tienen carácter informal y, muchas veces, personal.

  • se actualizan de forma periódica.

  • no requieren la intervención de profesionales o informáticos.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                El formato, estilo y contenidos de los blogs pueden ser diversos. Como muchas veces son blogs personales,el estilo y los contenidos reflejan los de su autor en cada caso.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Pero una que debemos plantearnos es la siguiente: ¿Cuál es la diferencia entre un weblog y una página personal? Pues bien, la gran diferencia radica en que los blogs son actualizados de una manera más rápida, y no requieren conocimiento previo de html, porque la mayoría de sitios que ofrecen blogs gratis, ofrecen plantillas hechas en las que es muy fácil presentar la información que cada uno quiera publicar.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     El mundo de los blogs está muy relacionado con el las noticias y la actualidad. Uno de los bloggers (autor de un blog) más famosos es Salam Pax, alias el Blogger de Bagdad, que ofrecía información independiente a través de su blog durante la guerra de Irak.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      La mejor manera de conocer realmente qué es un blog es leyendo algunos y luego hacer uno tu mismo. Puede ser un sitio informativo, un sitio en el que un especialista ofrece información sobre su campo de especialidad, o simplemente un desahogo. Algunos blogs tienen, literalmente, miles de lectores; aunque otros, solo son leídos por sus propios autores.
