The blog or weblog was invented in 1995 to provide a date ordered calendar style method of recording events. Typically web pages were static, with the advent of the blog more dynamic web sites started to exist. Early pioneers created platforms that allowed users to create “blogs” and share them with the community and their friends. Blogging became extremely popular at the start of the 21st century and has been one of the foundations of the social web. Owners of popular blogs are now invited to product launches and are provided much acclaim as their readership starts to outnumber regular newspaper companies.

WordPress is the most popular blog platform on the internet, with both an online hosted version and a downloadable self installation version available. WordPress offers many features including RSS syndication and easy to use administration features.
