Your compupedia defines Blogger and Blogging but not "Blog".

Can not find any explanation of RSS.

Isn't RSS the method used to blog? That really explains a lot. :flowers:

Anyway just found the RSS thing on the Home page. Will be experimenting with that but wanted to know what I am experimenting with :thumbsup:

Really wish that the Web would stop generating these weird terms without explaining the to ME :trumpet:

Ack...thanks for letting us know about the Glossary messups. WIll add it now.

We are actually working on presenting an RSS tutorial before we announce the RSS additions to our site. RSS is based around XML, which I will explain a bit as well, and is not the basic of Blog's but rather a method of allowing other contents to use your blogs or news services on their sites or in software.


A blog is just a online journal that has entries organized by dates and times. RSS is a method of extracting that information so that remote sites or software can import it.

Will go into more detaila bout RSS in the tutorial., but maybe a tutorial on blogs and XML is in order as well

Sounds good.

I was thinking that a blog was a synopsis of something that the blogger ;) had found of interest and had posted with a link to the original.

Anyway looking forward to your elucidation.

Edited to correct typos - will I never learn to preview better?
