Title: Local Weblogs
Post by: Editor on October 19, 2003, 01:36:15 pm
Do any users of this site have Weblogs (or Blogs) as they are also known? If so please add the URL to this message. If enough are added it might be worth starting an index on this site linking to them.

Hi ATG,
They are like websites. Anyone can use them to publish to the Web. Ideal for travel logs, clubs, associations etc. The basic ones are free to set up.

Being highly opinionated Iíve often thought about starting a blog. Being highly disorganised, I never have the time. Many blogs are as dull as reading a strangerís diary, full of the petty boring everyday events. But blogs are interesting if you find a good one, where the person updates it regularly and is able to coherently argue a point of view. A good example would be this one I found a couple of years ago.

While Mr Reilly seldom writes anything I agree with, he is usually able to give a good chain of reasoning and he has a impressive knowledge of history.

Blogs written  in a world hotspot can give insight into what is happening separate to the spin of governments. Baghdad Burning is famous, but its author has posted a few questionable articles

Brookmans Park Youth Football Club said they didn't mind me pointing to their weblog as an example of how a blog can be used for the benefit of the community.

Gobions Woodland Trust said it was okay to share the link to the blog kept by the Sunday work parties. The volunteers spend most Sunday mornings working in the woods, and a few weeks ago started a blog on a trial basis in order to keep a record of work done. Here it is...
