The world of blog – looking back

Posted by Illya on 22 January 2007



The blog workshop was quite interesting – doing blogs with only 1 computer is a bit of a challenge! However, you will see in the pictures that there was, in fact, a chance to blog virtually – that is with pen and paper instead of on the computer . My, how the world has changed 😛

I also promised links to some wonderful examples of blogs, which I hope will give inspiration to some of the blog readers out there.


Now that the blog is up and running, I hope that others add to this blog and make comments as well:-)

This is the very first ETAS blog, set up at the ETAS 07 AGM.

Here are some other blog providers and RSS feeders.

Please add a post or comment 😉


Main blog providers

The biggest blog provider, recently bought by Google:

http://www.blogger.com/start

Innovative blog provider, also powers edublogs

http://edublogs.org/

Yahoo blog – you need to have a yahoo account and invite people to see your blog

http://360.yahoo.com/

There are also other providers who offer a blog together with other services, like Yahoo does.



RSS Aggregators

What’s an RSS feed? This keeps track of new additions to your blog.

Wikipedia defines it here.(click on ‘here’)

Here are a few more popular aggregators:

A web-based aggregator, always available on the web regardless of the computer you are on. Great with Firefox

http://www.bloglines.com/

There is a free 30-day trial for feeddemon, after that you need to pay. I’ve heard it’s worth the money

http://feeddemon.com/

Sharpreader runs on Internet Explorer, I believe

http://www.sharpreader.net/

Feedblitz is a simple version which sends new posts to you via e-mail
