Rookie Blogger

We finally have a blog..........I guess this could be the begginings of a blogging family. I haven't neccessarily decided if I'm excited about blogging or not.
Blog by Wikipedia definition is ---

"A blog (a portmanteau of web log) is a website where entries are commonly displayed in reverse chronological order. "Blog" can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art (artlog), photographs (photoblog), sketchblog, videos (vlog), music (MP3 blog), audio (podcasting) are part of a wider network of social media. Micro-blogging is another type of blogging which consists of blogs with very short posts. As of December 2007, blog search engine Technorati was tracking more than 112 million blogs.[1]

The modern blog evolved from the online diary, where people would keep a running account of their personal lives. Most such writers called themselves diarists, journalists, or journalers. A few called themselves "escribitionists".

Early weblogs were simply manually updated components of common websites. However, the evolution of tools to facilitate the production and maintenance of web articles posted in reverse chronological order made the publishing process feasible to a much larger, less technical, population."
Miles' definition- "A free place to publish a diary or a journal to the public, with a whole lotta technical flash to better express your opinion, agenda or ramblings of the mind.
I think this could be conditionally healthy.... Everyone has somehthing to say. The question is "How big is your audience? or Does it really matter?"
As long as we have a forum to openly express ourselves .....
So far in this very short message with a little bit of techno cutting and pasting, I have found blogging enjoyable and interesting. I need to learn to type at the same rate that I think.
Now if I can just figure out how to put a picture on this thing!
Until next time.....BYKOTA
