This article interrogates the relationship between a specific digital tool (the weblog or blog) and the discipline of history. We go over some basic questions (What is a blog? What role does it play?). Then, with different examples, we present various types of history blogs. Finally, we highlight certain particularities about the reading of blogs that are fundamental to reflecting on their impact within specific communities.
