What is a blogger?

There seems to be some confusion as to what a blogger is, even amongst some of our longest serving commenters. For clarification, I turn to the long standing Samizdata glossary, where they define it thus:

1. noun. A person who owns or writes for a weblog.

2. proprietary. Blogger.com, the most widespread blog publishing software package created by Evan Williams. www.blogger.comSee also, bloggerel, blogopotamus, Blogorrhea, AND Commenter.
