A blog is an online record of your personal brand

A blog is the long term persistence of public identity, across all domains

A 'blog' is not a certain technology, URL or platform (like wordpress). It's simply the result of "blogging". So every webspace where a person publishes his personal view on the world without editorial control is a blog.

A blog is a content format

Long columns, 2-3
