There is a new pastime that has emerged in the Internet world: Blogging.

The term “blog” is actually derived from “web log” which, in essence, is an online journal. Blogs have exploded in popularity. Estimates have put the number of blogs worldwide as high as three million.

Apparently there are many people who enjoy posting regular updates of their lives, activities, thoughts and feelings. Most blogs are relatively harmless: A somewhat public diary or a way to keep friends and family involved in one’s life.
