    I know it's a minor thing but it drives me crazy. And I don't mean to offend any one. But, a lot of people keep coming in here and talking about their blog here on hub pages. Hub pages is not a blogging site and your articles are not blogs...they are articles.

    A definition of a blog from Wikipedia:

    "A blog is a type of 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."

    Sorry, I just had to get it off my chest smile

    I completely agree smile If I am going to do a Hybrid Article/Blog I do so like the one about the Little Puppy that keeps me from working. Where there are facts but also a simple and entertaining story or so I hope and a video.

    Glad it's not just me.  I even get confused when I hear people talking about their "blogs" until I figure out they're referring to their hubs.  roll

    My two cents on the subject ... If anyone expects to make a decent amount of adsense from a blog, they better have a VERY interesting life. smile
