What are the general features of a blog?

The main differentiating feature of a blog is the content. The content is arranged like articles, posted in real time (anytime) and is arranged with the newest content appearing first.

There are other secondary features of a blog:

- About page, where the author can give background on him/herself.

- Archives, where the past posts are listed for review.

- Sidebars, where extra features can be added like widgets and advertisements.
