    The main feed; in a news aggrigator, it's the news items, in a podcast client, it's the media files.

  • iTunes RSS 2.0

    This is the feed for iTunes to load the podcast. Why so difficult and non-standard? Beats's why I use Juice and not iTunes.

What the heck is a blog?

Filed under: General — Charlie Summers @ 3:30 pm

I have to admit I’m a little surprised at how many people are asking me what a “blog” is. I thought everyone had run into them once or twice. But then, someone asked me what a “trackback” was, and I realised…er…I wasn’t exactly sure. I mean, I knew how to ping a trackback URL, but I wasn’t sure why I’d want to.

So I did a little search, and found an introduction to weblog terms for weblog readers written by Phil Gyford early in 2003. It is a simple yet easy-to-understand guide to some of the necessary terms to understand what blogging is and how to get the most out of it.
