The Blogs module allows you to publish a personal or company blog, which is a frequent, chronological publication of one's thoughts and web links. You can publish multiple blogs on the same site and there can be multiple editors for each blog.
The Blogs module fully leverages the standard content management engine, so every blog post you create is a standard document that can be displayed on the website, searched, etc. You can also configure permissions and workflow for every blog as you're used to do with other content.
If you would like to see an example of blog, please refer to a sample blog on the Corporate Site sample website (see Developer's guide -> Modules -> Blogs -> Sample blog).

Subchapters on trackbacking (see Trackbacks), on a programming interface enabling co-operation of the Blogs module with external programs (see MetaWeblog API) and topics related to Blog comments notifications (see Blog comments notifications -> Who can be notified, User subscriptions and E-mail templates) are also available in the Blogs chapter.
If you would like to compare the Corporate Site sample blog with a more detailed example of blogging, please switch to the Community Site sample website where you can find not only sample blogs with sample blog posts but also a tag cloud. The Tag cloud web part (see Modules -> Tags -> Using the Tag cloud web part in the Developer's Guide) is used to display key words, called tags that are associated with a document and is convenient for simple marking of documents according to various criteria, e.g. your interests.
