Journalism: writing characterized by a direct presentation of facts or description of events without an attempt at interpretation. Blog: a Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer; also: the contents of such a site. Short for Weblog. --both definitions from Mirriam-Webster’s dictionary We present these definitions to you with a very specific purpose in mind: to delineate between what we do here at the Chronicle-Independent and what people who post status updates and comments on blogs; Facebook pages; and personal, group or even corporate websites do.
