    • 2. Let‟s get to know each other…
    • 3. WHAT IS BLOGGING?
    • 4. •A reverse diary (most recent entry first?)
    • 5. • Short for Web log, a blog is a web page that serves as a publically accessible journal for an individual. Typically updated daily, blogs often reflect the personality of the author.http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/B/blog.html
    • 6. • A website that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments and often hyperlinks provided by the writer.http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/blog
    • 7. • Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject; others function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki.blog
    • 8. • A website that allows others to reflect, share opinions, and discuss various topics in the form of an online journal whilst readers may comment on posts. Most blogs are written in a slightly informal tone (personal journals, news, businesses, etc.) Entries typically appear in reverse chronological order.http://www.wordnik.com/words/blog

    • 57. • Have you stopped to consider the cultural colloquiums and references you make in your blog writing which are country, region, or age specific?• If you are writing for a very specific audience, then use terms and phrases they will recognize and identify with. Identifiable cultural colloquialisms connect people. When they understand the reference, you hold their attention and can move forward with the subject matter. There is no confusion.• Still, watch for colloquial phrases and asides that don’t add to your blog writing. We often throw in metaphors and similes that don’t add to the content but stylize it.http://www.blogherald.com/2007/05/04/are-you-really-writing-for-your-blog-audience/
