“Blog” is a word that is short for web log.
A blog is a website that is maintained like a diary, with entries (or “posts”) appearing in reverse chronological order, so the newest appears first.
The word “blog” can be used to refer to the website itself, or it can be used as a verb to describe the act of creating the website or posts (such as: “We will be blogging new and exciting stories on our blog”).
Blogs range widely in form and content. Most blogs contain text, images, links to other websites or blogs, and an interactive “comments” feature that allows readers to leave comments that appear on the blog.
The only difference between a blog and a traditional website is that a blog tends to be updated and changed more often, and follows the style of an online diary.

Subscribing is free and easy. All that it means is that you will get a short email in your email box when a new article is posted on the Blog. (We post a new article every 1-2 weeks- so you won’t receive many emails.) It makes it easier for you to read the blog because you don’t have to find it on the Internet every time. It will send you the article, like a traditional newsletter. From the email message, you can click through to view the whole Blog if you want.
