What is a blog

Posted by Swaroop C H on May 10, 2005 Filed under: blogging, tech

Some of my friends, who are uninitiated to the blogosphere, know that I write a 'blog' but they still don't get what it really means.

I've achieved some success by helping them understand how to use Firefox Live Bookmarks but I am sure there must be a lot of intro articles on blogs. I just can't find any that are simple enough.

Are you trying to initiate them into blogging or into RSS reading? Or using the latter as a means to get them to grok the former? ;-)
