Get Blogging!


A Blog can be a great way to gain a precence on the Web, either by itself or as a supplemental commentary to a main website.

The name Blog is an abbreviated version of weblog which is a term used to describe web sites that maintain an ongoing chronicle of information and is a main reason this website format is a popular way for people to publish their thoughts and ideas to the world.

Blogs range from the personal to business, but generally speaking they tend to have a few things in common:

  • A main content area with articles listed chronologically, newest on top. Often, the articles are organized into categories.
  • An archive of older articles.
  • A way for people to leave comments about the articles.
  • A list of links to other related sites, sometimes called a “blogroll”.
