A brilliant collection of links on to notable articles on Weblogs.
bq. I suspect many of us who write weblogs have attempted to describe what a weblog is to someone who’s never seen one before. I may describe my own as similar to a daily column where I write mostly about web design, technology, and related topics. That barely scratches the surface to describe my weblog or weblogs in general, and that description may not even begin to fit others’ weblogs, either, as each one is unique; however, by relating to a term or phrase someone is already familiar with, such as a daily column, the person at least gets an idea about my weblog.
