My own definition of blog is a platform to share information and ideas online, and is constantly updated.

You might want to read some other definitions from various sources..

Blog is short form for weblog. A weblog is a journal (or newsletter) that is frequently updated and intended for general public consumption. [source]

Blog is the contraction universally used for weblog, a type of website where entries are made (such as in a journal or diary), displayed in a reverse chronological order.

Blogs often provide commentary or news and information on a particular subject, such as food, politics, or local news; some function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. Most blogs are primarily textual although some focus on photographs (photoblog), videos (vlog), or audio (podcasting), and are part of a wider network of social media. [source]

A blog gives you your own voice on the web. It’s a place to collect and share things that you find interesting— whether it’s your political commentary, a personal diary, or links to web sites you want to remember.

Many people use a blog just to organize their own thoughts, while others command influential, worldwide audiences of thousands. Professional and amateur journalists use blogs to publish breaking news, while personal journalists reveal inner thoughts. [source]

The biggest different with a blog and common websites is the frequency that it’s updated. There’s also more interaction between the author and readers at a blog compared to a simple website.
