Indeed, bloggers do not only produce content to post on their blogs, but also often build social relations with their readers and other bloggers.However, there are high-readership blogs which do not allow comments.Many blogs provide commentary on a particular subject or topic, ranging from politics to sports.Others function as more personal online diaries, and others function more as online brand advertising of a particular individual or company.Daily Net News ran links and daily reviews of new websites, mostly in Australia.Another early blog was Wearable Wireless Webcam, an online shared diary of a person's personal life combining text, digital video, and digital pictures transmitted live from a wearable computer and Eye Tap device to a web site in 1994.In the 2010s, the majority are interactive Web 2.0 websites, allowing visitors to leave online comments, and it is this interactivity that distinguishes them from other static websites.In that sense, blogging can be seen as a form of social networking service.
From 14 June 1993, Mosaic Communications Corporation maintained their "What’s New" list of new websites, updated daily and archived monthly.
The page was accessible by a special "What's New" button in the Mosaic web browser.
The earliest instance of a commercial blog was on the first business to consumer Web site created in 1995 by Ty, Inc., which featured a blog in a section called "Online Diary".
The entries were maintained by featured Beanie Babies that were voted for monthly by Web site visitors.
The modern blog evolved from the online diary where people would keep a running account of the events in their personal lives.
