What is a "flash blog," you ask???

This post seeks to clarify what is meant exactly by a "flash blog." (Thank you guys for asking!) 

A flash blog is a lot like a blogging version of a flash mob. Oxford dictionary defines a flash mob as "A large public gathering at which people perform an unusual or seemingly random act and then disperse, typically organized by means of the Internet or social media."

We've all seen those cute YouTube clips of people doing a cool choreographed dance in a public venue, etc. A flash blog does the same, but rather than being a "seemingly random" act, flash blogs are typically very purposeful.

Here is a link to the "This is Autism" flash blog that was organized in 2013:
