What Is Blogging?

February 23rd, 2011

In response to my comment on Twitter about wanting to commission a good entry-level web site for aspiring bloggers, Ian Beck experiments with nailing down exactly what blogging is. Obviously, it’s many, many, things. Like chess, you can teach the ground rules to somebody, who then has a practically limitless number of choices about how they deploy with those rules.

Some of Ian’s remarks are inspiring, and may encourage you to blog more even if you already know what blogging is. I particularly like the simplicity of:

Blogging is sharing something you have created online. And then doing it again tomorrow (or next week, or next month, or next year). And again.

    Hey Daniel,

    I wrote something on this way back in 2006 that might be of interest to you. It’s called “This Blog in History,” and it asks (back when blogging was first taking off), “What are we doing here? What are our responsibilities as bloggers?”

    Hope you enjoy it:
