What is a Blog?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A blog (a contraction of the term weblog) is a website, usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material such as graphics or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse-chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

Tabbloid is a great tool for capturing blog posts from multiple blogs without having to actually go to each site!

If newspapers are old school, and aggregators are new school, then consider Tabbloid the rest area on the highway between the two. Tabbloid is a simple Web 2.0 application that allows you to submit a set of RSS feeds along with an email address, and then have sent to you a newsletter via email that aggregates together all the recent postings from those blogs.
