Think of a blog (a contraction of weblog) as your online journal, a place to write about whatever you like: your daily experiences, political opinions, a great trip, favorite recipes, what music you're listening to—anything that strikes your fancy.
Blogs are typically composed of one or more entries. Each entry has its own title and always says the date and time you published it. Blogs show the last entry first, and you scroll down to read earlier entries. It's like a reverse diary and a perfect way to archive your thoughts.
The nice thing about a blog, is that you can choose to share it with your friends and family who can easily view it when they visit your profile on Yahoo! Blog. Imagine sharing your daily encounters while traveling the world; no postage required. You can even include photos and videos. Your friends can add comments, and you’ll be keeping in touch no matter where you are.
In Yahoo! Blog, you can divide your blog entries into categories that allow you and your readers to view entries on the same topic in sequence.
