blog noun \ˈblȯg, ˈbläg\

Since I began this blog, I have had a lot of positive feedback and gained followers in the design community.  As someone who is beginning a new career after being in politics + government and a stay at home mom + volunteer, it is a way for me to connect with others and share my experiences as a student.  A couple people have inquired as to what this is? a business? what I like?  As a blogger and avid reader of blogs, these questions surprise me.  One inquiry came from someone living overseas, but still, I thought, doesn't everyone know what a blog is in 2010?  To be clear, I have added blog to the header and the description remains the same.  Thank you to all who take the time to read it--I hope you enjoy!

Wikipedia - Blogs are 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.
Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs.
