Travel Blogs
A blog is a personal journal that is kept by someone and made available to the world , often with daily updates.  What someone used to keep as a journal or diary of their thoughts has now been turned into an electronic web log, nicknamed weblog and since shortened to simply blog that can be seen by anyone who has access to the web. Blog entries are usually displayed in reverse order with the most recent entry first. 

Naturally, travel blogs are blogs about travel.  They are someone's personal travel experiences when out and about in the global village. Now when you step off the bus in a faraway place, you can tell the world about your experience in a few hours.  Sometimes, you can tell your story or observations as they unfold on the bus, train, plane, or boat.  These are first-person accounts of your experience on the 3rd rock from the sun.  They include travel tips and good and bad experiences that await a traveler in a far off land. Many of them are very well written and may include photographs or videos.  This planet will never lack for travel writers!  Blogs are now being tagged.  Tags are keywords that relate to a particular blog.  Wikipedia has a a good article on tags as related to the web and blogs.
For an interesting short history of the origin of blog and blogging, see Wikipedia's Blog article.
