Actually a blog is merely a page with an authors thoughts (comments
are optional).

A web log merely is a way of looking at an author's journaling.

Things like comments, multiple authors, publishing, RSS, etc... all
are tack ons.

Today, the word blog tends to mean: whatever features are found in
my favorite (usually free) blogging site.

To me, a threaded posting/viewing engine is more interesting since
it could be used for blogging, forums, newgroup/email-like things.

Just muddying the waters some more...
