A music weblog (blog) is run by an individual (or a small group of individuals) and covers topical issues in and around music. Weblogs are updated regularly and disseminate both fact and opinion online. Weblogs are not constrained to a particular musical style or focus but offer simply writers' opinions on musical activities in a timely fashion.
