How to, and why

I’d been thinking of creating a section for about how and why to create a weblog. It turns out that I don’t need to, as the Guardian Online has already written one.

Of particular interest are Rebecca Blood’s comment on what blogs are and are not, Neil McIntosh and Jane Perrone’s glossary of blogging terminology (which they say they will be updating over time), and Neil McIntosh’s brief overview of how to choose weblog software and set a blog up.

Nice to see Hugh MacLeod’s blogging cartoons featured through all the articles as well.
