Starting a "real" blog!?

Tuesday, August 21st, 2007

Like some other popular words on the Internet, there is much disagreement about the meaning of “blog”.

An influential early book, Essential Blogging, begins “Here’s a dry definition of a blog: A blog is a web page that contains brief, discrete hunks of information called posts. These posts are arranged in reverse-chronological order (the most recent posts come first). Each post is uniquely identified by an anchor tag, and it is marked with a permanent link that can be referred to by others who wish to link to it.”

By that definition, the “tidbits” that I write are a blog. However, I’ve not thought of them as blog, for several reasons.
