What Is Blogging, Bloggoing style?
Blogging is a short term for weblog which is a term that describes
web sites that contain an ongoing amount of information. Itís a
frequently updated personal journal that has diary type entries and
links to other articles that can be found on that site. These range from
personal to political and beyond. Most of these blogs focus on just one
subject such as mobile technology, web design and other such topics.
These blogs contain the following information: a blog with articles
listed from newest to oldest, an archive of older blogs, ways for people
to leave comments on these blogs, links to other sites and feeds such as
RSS and Atomic.

to others though a subscription. This provides a good way for readers to

to understand what a Blogroll is. A Blogroll is a list of sites that the
owner of the blog finds interesting or even useful not only to them but
that may be of use to their readers. These are also linked to other web
sites of interest for the readers of the site.
Our last topic of discussion will be pretty permalinks. These are
permanent links to your article or blog that have been sent through
email. These links will automatically link the email to the blog post in
question. Theses links are visible and can be clicked through to take
the person in question to the post in question. These permanent links
will be what other webloggers will refer to when referencing your blog
