a collection of web pages (documents that are accessed through the Internet). Traditionally, rarely changed hence the term static website or page. Trish Jones says, blogs are dynamic websites. Dynamic, meaning that the content changes frequently and there is more interaction as well as the addition of news feeds, events and now, social media.
