In theory, blogs take the complexity out of
creating content for the web
6
7
Most blogs have a comments area to facilitate
feedback and conversation

Blogs are (usually) organized in reverse
chronological order

Blog entries are usually short, first-person,
chatty and informal

RSS
  • Really Simple Syndication
  • Huh, pretty meaningless to most people
  • Really means put my headlines and summaries on
    someone elses Web page automatically
  • Write once, publish many
  • The benefit of RSS is the aggregation of content
    from multiple Web sources in one place
