What is a blog, anyway?

For those who may not be familiar with blogs or blogging, here's the definition from Webster's New Millennium Dictionary of English (2005):

blog: a personal Web site that provides updated headlines and news articles of other sites that are of interest to the user, also may include journal entries, commentaries, and recommendations compiled by the user; also written as Web log, Weblog

For our purposes, this Bluegrass Cafe (or, BG Cafe) blog will include information on upcoming festivals and shows in New England (particulary southern New England), information about new CDs and performers, links to other bluegrass sites of interest to our listeners and readers, and maybe even some of our own thoughts on various bluegrass topics. You may see information posted by either of the BG Cafe's radio hosts: Amy Orlomoski and Jim Beaver, as well as our longtime show producer, Myrna Riquier. We'll always let you know who has posted something, so that confusion will be avoided. Commentary from you is always welcome, so if you've got something to say, feel free to click the link at the bottom of this post (it says "[Number]comments"; when you click on it, a new window will open, and you'll be able to post your comments).
