Back from camping…why is it I keep forgetting how hard it is to camp with two toddlers???
Brian Fitzgerald gets to the “why weblogs” question as he prepares for an upcoming seminar. Here’s a quote:
“I think that it has to do with the real nature of weblogs, the focus on content. Web pages typically require a lot of thought regarding the form of the page before content can begin to be put into it. There are also considerations such as site architecture and depth that always need to be addressed. This is much more than most people want to deal with. It’s more than I, a web developer, want to deal with. People have often asked me if I have a web page and I have always responded that I simply don’t have time or cause to have my own. They are a lot of work. Weblogs (getting back to the topic) however get all of the form issues out of the way at the very beginning, wether you design it yourself or choose a provided “theme”, and allow you to spend the rest of your time posting true content to your webpage.”
A good point, especially when giving kids the “paper” for Internet publishing, right Pat?
