What is a Blog? 2


A blog entry is called a post (though there are static pages too just like a regular website) and consists of five basic components:

The Title: The main headline of the blog post.

The Body: The main content of the blog post, which can consist of text and/or photos and video.

Permalink: This is the URL of the individual post.

Post Date: The date and time the post was published to the blog website.

A blog entry can also include comments from readers, categories within the navigation of the site as a whole, and keywords used to describe the content more fully for people searching for information, commonly called tags.

For example Bichon Frise,  Bichon Frise dog training, Bichon Frise dog training on leash might all be possible tags for an article on how to train a Bichon Frise to walk on a leash in a well-behaved manner.

There are also trackback links, which are links to other sites that refer to the blog entry.

When you set up your blog, you will be able to set all these parameters within the program.

Blogging is a hot “Web 2.0 trend”, with anyone able to create and publish their own content online quickly and easily.
