    Hi Guys,

    I have heard about these things, but, what are they? I click on Nets' sig link and read his postings and musings, are those blogs? I wonder if I need one? What is the difference of posting something that concerns me here than compared to something posted on a blog? Where can I get I blog?

    Sorry if I sound stupid, but I always wondered what they were.

    I would define blog as my online diary. It's a place where Icanpoststuff that I find interesting, a place where I can expressmyopinionsand thoughts. And it's for everyone to read it. :)

    You can make your own blog using HTML/CSS. Or you could use some services such as Blogger. You can also use Content Management Systems like WordPress or Movable Type, but I guess you will need some webspace.

    What ~bk said sums it up. Live Journal is something alot of us teenages have been using. Its very customizable but u gotta learn the different codes for color,size and shapes and all that if u really want to customize it. Otherwise you can use there default themes on there. I love livejournal!

    Great,

    Thanks for the input. I have created a Blogger account and posted my first blog. Thanks again. Might even try Livejournal next right away.

    Everyone who has a blog here should link to it in their sigs. After all, what's the point of having one if you don't share the link? Let's see some more blogs, people.
    Hey, if I like yours, I might even hand out some rep points. ;)

    I'd stick with Blogger, it's a good choice for content management. Stay away from LiveJournal, it's widely Stereotype'd as being full of moaning kids who just post to whine how bad and depressing their lives are... funny how they can post that from a (likely) expensive computer yet some people in the world don't have enough food to survive... that's another matter all together though :p

    I put a link to my LJ. Its friends only which means u gotta have a lj account and ask me to add you to my friends list. It limits the people that talk øøøø and dont leave there name. I am doing a pic update on there so you might see some pics in a few.

    Blogs are for people with no friends to post inane rubbish which no one cares about so other people with no friends can read it, and thus pretend they all have friends

    ....



    I'm joking! :D (mostly) :)
