New to Blogging?

Posted by RoniNoone on February 6, 2008

I’ve noticed some hesitation from those of you not familiar with blogs. That’s OK! I understand it’s a new mode of communication that you may not yet be familiar with. This page does a great job of giving a very brief explanation.

Blogger.com says:

“A blog is a personal diary. A daily pulpit. A collaborative space. A political soapbox. A breaking-news outlet. A collection of links. Your own private thoughts. Memos to the world.”

WordPress.com says:

“A blog is a particular type of web site, where articles (or “posts” or “entries”) are listed in reverse-chronological order (the most recent articles at the top).

Blogs are usually published by individuals as a kind of diary, journal, magazine, or independent journalism. There are many millions of active blogs on the internet, written by millions of people about millions of topics.”

Roni say: ;~P

“A blog is a way for us to communicate outside of class. It gives us a medium to share ideas, thoughts, examples, articles, tutorials or anything else we find helpful to our studies in class. It fosters a sense of community and collaboration among us while allowing the individual student to control his or her own interest in the subject matter. “

Hope that helps and PLEASE post any questions about the class blog in the comments!
