What is a blog
« on: November 12, 2005, 07:38:13 am »

Excuse me for my ignorance, but what actually is a blog. How does it differentiate itself from other types of forums.
Is this a blog that I am on now?

No, now you're at a FORUM. A blog is from the beginning something a lot like a "public diary", where I write a lot of crap that I think should be exposed to the great public... So, "blog" comes from web log, I think.. That is a log on the web, a diary if you will.

The concept of "blog" has since the beginning been brought from the "diary" thing to being an actual website...sort/kind...That means that people today uses the "old blog look" to present their websites. This is a simplyfied personal reflection of mine...I think way to many people uses the "blog-thingy" instead of making their own website, but that's me...I think I'm gonna do it myself aswell, since sNews, or SoleNews as I'd like to call it, came online ;)

No angelo_f

the is the Simple Machines Forum software, and is simply the forum software that Luka chose to use for the site:

http://www.simplemachines.org/

it's nice and clean I think, and not so code heavy! also pretty stable. There is no direct tie in between SMF and sNews, you'd have to install that seperately ok :)

You're talking about pots for like cooking or something? When you think about it there is some cooking involved...
