: : : I found the following from the website of Toronto Star: "From a blogger in battered Baghdad to the official voice of Saddam Hussein's regime, there's no shortage of points of view about the war on the Web." What is the meaning of blogger? I cannot find the meaning from the dictionary. Thanks.

: : "Blogger" is short for "Web logger," someone who maintains a Web log, a page where a personal journal is published.

BLOGGERS - ".Online writers, alternatively referred to as web loggers and 'bloggers,' have become increasingly influential in the news-gathering process. Their sites shape coverage and drive debate in a way not unlike talk radio. But never before have they owned a story like they did the Trent Lott saga." U.S. Sen. Lott had "praised Strom Thurmond's segregationist run for president." From a newspaper article: "Chalk one up for the Web's avid politicos: Bloggers showed their clout by leading media on Lott." by Kevin Canfield, Hartford Courant, reprinted Jan. 3, 2003 in the Lexington (Ky.) Herald-Leader.
