What is a blog?
« on: August 09, 2010, 07:42:12 PM »
Blogs are web pages created by individuals or groups and stored on the internet. They usually include text and images. Blogs are an ideal space to write about your ideas and opinions. Blogs are often used like an online diary, giving regular updates on what’s happening. When you add something on a blog, it’s called a ‘post’.


Blogs are becoming more popular with teachers and pupils for a number of reasons:
• Blogs are really easy to create and publish.
• Pupils can reflect on their own learning and give and receive feedback.
• They encourage peer-group collaboration and discussion.
• They teach pupils to express and defend their ideas and opinions with a real audience.
• Pupils can use blogs to develop a topic of interest.
They also allow teachers to explain difficult concepts pupils may not have grasped in class. A teacher can offer support and guidance while the learner can ask further questions.

Thank you

If "blog" is a term that's new to you, don't be concerned. You've probably encountered lots of blogs while using the Web for work or recreation. In fact, blogs existed long before the term was coined. NCSA's What's New page from back in June 1993 is credited as being one of the earliest blogs. In the library sphere, Jenny Levine's Librarians' Site du Jour is considered the original library blog.

Blog, short for Weblog, is a Web site that contains brief entries arranged in reverse chronological order. Blogs are diverse, ranging from personal diaries to news sites that monitor developments on anything from Outer Mongolia to copyright law. Evan Williams, the creator of Blogger, describes them this way: "the blog concept is about three things: Frequency, Brevity and Personality."

In order to get a feel for the world of blogging, it helps to get a handle on the lingo. "Blogging" is the act of creating a blog. A "blogger" is a person who maintains a blog. Bloggers create entries, which they "post" or publish to their blog. "Bloggrolling" is the act of moving from one blog to another.

A blog can be created by just one author or done collaboratively by a community of authors. Blogs can be updated from several times per day to just a few times per week or month. Some blogs encourage interactivity between the writer and audience by allowing readers to post comments and questions about entries.

Today, blogs range from the simple "what's new" type of listing to sophisticated Web sites with dozens of bells and whistles—site search capabilities; topical categories; daily, weekly, and monthly archives; built-in mailing list management functions; and RSS headline syndication. The blog content ranges from the interesting and insightful to the mundane and useless.
