A blog (a contraction of the term "Web log") is a website, has regular entries of essays, commentary or other material such as graphics or video. The Blogosphere is the collective community of all blogs. Since all blogs are on the Internet by definition, they may be seen as interconnected and socially networked. Discussions "in the Blogosphere" have been used by the media as a gauge of public opinion on various issues. (source: Technorati). Blogs with a Jewish focus are often referred to as J-Blogs, or part of the greater J-Blogosphere. For more information and interesting statistics about blogs and the scope of their influence, visit the comprehensive report by Technorati, State of the Blogosphere.
