- As a fan of the Web, of diaries, of people’s innermost thoughts, and of voyeurism and raw emotion and links and whatnot, you’d think I’d be the perfect blog fan. And I am! Leo and I were talking about our mutual blog adoration and came up with a little something we like to call the Blog Report. It’s our way of keeping up on the world of blogging for a few minutes each week. From the funny to the informative, from the frightening to the creative, there’s a blog out there for everyone. It just needs to be found.
A blog, of course, is a weblog, where folks post text and pics in a diary format organized by date. Within that format the options are endless. The only no-no is neglecting it. I learned this the hard way when Megan, Morgan, Cat, and I slowly stopped blogging at Leoville. Boy, did I get reamed for that! I swear that wasn’t completely my fault. The other girls all got their own blogs and I didn’t want to be Leo’s only angel! By the way, I’m working on a blog of my very own, so bear with me for a week or so.
Blogs are cool because they cater to everybody. For example, I don’t really like race cars, but I came across the blog of some dude who’s absolutely passionate and crazy about ’em. I ended up reading a month’s worth of entries because I liked his style.
Blogs aren’t just personal rants, either. Slashdot is a great example of a news-based blog that’s enormously popular. Cnet’s News.com is a bit of a blog too, since it gets stacked by date. There are also blog collections where you can read a lot of blogs in one place. There are RSS feeds too. They let you read blogs in a different way. I’ll discuss those in a future article.
Here are some blogs I like. You might not have had the pleasure of discovering them. And if you have, give your sweet ass a pat for being as Web-worldly as me!
Blogcritics.orgA collection of blogs relating to music, books, movies, and other entertainment sources. These peeps are informed, have decent opinions, and write well.
