    This is not a server side issue.

    Blogger takes care of all the server side features, you have nothing to do.

    It uses a database, where all the entries are stored, and retrieves them, like the threads in this forum.


    Simple.

    I am not personally looking for a blog but just a more technical explanation. I was just looking for what the big deal is with blogs. I guess it is just text stored in large varchar db fields?

    no, that would be a BLOB.

    They have a brief description of what a blog is on that site:
