What's a blog?
In simple terms, a blog (a combination of the words "Web" and "log") is a Website where people "blog" (add entries, which are like short articles) on a regular basis. The newest entries show up on top, so you can easily see what's new and interesting each time you visit, but can read older entries, too. Visitors can add comments to each entry, email interesting entries to others, link to the blog from other sites, and even subscribe to alerts about new entries.
Unlike other articles on SparkPeople.com, the dailySpark's blog entries will often be shorter, include more opinions and personal accounts, and react more quickly to news and trends as they're happening. Think of it as a new, fun way to learn from SparkPeople's experts and coaches, and interact with others by sharing your own experiences and comments.
