Do You Blog?

Not everyone who visits my site has their own blog but chances are, you read alot of other people’s blogs. If you don’t know what I’m talking about then let be give you the quick rundown.

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.

In simple terms, a blog is a web site, where you write stuff on an ongoing basis. New stuff shows up at the top, so your visitors can read what’s new. Then they comment on it or link to it or email you. Or not.

Now if you read enough blogs regularly, you may want to consider signing up for a Feed Reader Service. Basically, when a blog is updated with new content (a post) then the service will notify you so that you can read it in a timely manner. The main benefit is that you dont have to visit every one of your favorite blogs just to see if there is a new post. Visit one site and see all the latest updates. I first used the Google Reader but quickly switched to the more powerful Bloglines.

Bloglines is a FREE online service for searching, subscribing, creating and sharing news feeds, blogs and rich web content. With Bloglines, there is no software to download or install — simply register as a new user and you can instantly begin accessing your account any time, from any computer or mobile device. And it’s FREE!

See my current list of subscribed blog feeds.

I tell you this mostly to share a good resource but also to explain how I happen to read and post on some blogs so quickly. Your blog might be in my bloglines and I tend to check it often. If your interested in using bloglines and feel a little confussed, let me know and I will try to help get you started.
