As Wikipedia mentions, A Blog is a discussion or informational site published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete entries (“posts”) typically displayed in reverse chronological order. Means that the most recent post appears on the top. There are around 152 million blogs out of 1 billion websites on internet. A blog can have a content management system like WordPress or can use its own CMS to publish articles, also some blogs can use CMS provided by Blogger (which is a free to use blogging platform provided by Google).
