Blogging Conversation

Filed under: Blogging; Author: Les Bain; Posted: September 13, 2008 at 8:03 pm;

Blogging is often considered a conversation.  The conversation includes the following:

  1. Blog posts and comments.
    Blogs as a default have comments.  Blog readers can post comments about each post.  Blog comments can quickly degenerate into advertising, profanity, and viciousness, so blogging commenting is generally moderated.
  2. Linkbacks.
    Linkbacks are a way for the original blogger to be notified when another blogger links to one of their blog posts.  Blogging software supports linkbacks in a number of ways.
  3. Websites that gather blog posts on related topics.
    Techmeme is just one of many sites that gather up blog posts and other websites into topics, bringing blogs posts on the same topic together.
