Is this a blog?

I'm new in the blogging world (if there is any), and I didn't know that there is a view that draws a distinct line between "weblogs" and "web journals".

According to this source, a weblog is "focused outside the author and his or her site", whereas a web journal looks "inward - the author's thoughts, experiences, and opinions". This opinion is based on the history of how differently online journals and blogs evolved. In that sense, it's very instructive to me.

My understanding of the term "blog" so far has been from Blogger. They define a blog as "a web page made up of usually short, frequently updated posts that are arranged chronologically -- like a what's new page or a journal".

Seems like the definition of "blog" has been, and is, getting broader.
