Blogging 101

I am posting this in verbatim. I got the information from LM_NET, one of my egroups on libraries and information science. I found the hits very helpful for bloggers and blograrians (big or small, novice or advanced). Scroll down and read familiar names.

I actually received more requests for a Hit than I received Hits.
That said, the ones I received had some good information. Many
thanks for sharing. Here's the list. . . .

Blogger.com is very easy, and should get you started right away.

Blogger.com is really easy to use. Just pick your template and start
writing. There is also a "tour" you can take before you start.

Von Totanes, the owner of the blog did a very comprehensive Blogging

Try my blog that I made for a presentation. It has links about lots
of blogging issues and how to's. From: Paula Joseph
(Note: If you scroll down, there is a section entitled Blog
Considerations that includes a teacher’s guide to blogs, teens guide
to safe blogging, and more. -- Ronda)

I'd go with edublog http://edublogs.org/ They are using WordPress
which is easy to learn your way around in AND there is a great amount
of support. Free, no ads, not blocked anywhere I know of (yet). WP
has the best rated spam protection - my site blocks about 100 a week;
I get one or two a month held for authorizing first. No problems with
legit comments. If you later want to move to your own server or
domain, WP exports the data and imports it very easily. From:
