What is a Blog?
I’ve had a few questions recently about blogs, blogging and the difference between a blog and a post. So here is a description courtesy of Wikipedia . . .
“A blog is a website in which items are posted on a regular basis and displayed in reverse chronological order. The term blog is a shortened form of weblog or web log. Authoring a blog, maintaining a blog or adding an article to an existing blog is called “blogging”. Individual articles on a blog are called “blog posts,” “posts” or “entries”. A person who posts these entries is called a “blogger”. A blog comprises text, hypertext, images, and links (to other web pages and to video, audio and other files). Blogs use a conversational style of documentation. Often blogs focus on a particular “area of interest”, such as Washington, D.C.’s political goings-on. Some blogs discuss personal experiences.”
You can ask questions or give me feedback on any of my posts by writing your comments in the ‘Post your comments here’ box at the bottom of each entry. To avoid entering your name and email address each time you want to comment, just click on the Twitter or Facebook icon below the text box (see image above). You’ll be asked for permission to abstract your name and email address so that the page can remember you for next time. Your profile pic will appear next to our comment.
Coming up soon the lowdown on my first couple of days at Spanish language school and why I’ve been disliking it so much.
