How Do I Blog Thee?

Let me count the ways.

List blog

The original: lots and lots of links to things with no theme but their sum.

Diary blog

The other original - but don't try this at home unless you are really interesting.

Shard blog

Not quite a list blog, not quite a diary blog: instead, small fragments of a life refracted through the links encountered each day.

News blog

Lots of useful links on a well-defined subject area, plus quotes and the odd dash of intelligent comment.

Essay blog

Longer, more thoughtful postings, typically one per day: mental meat to chew on.

Photo blog

A picture is worth a thousand blog postings.

Video blog

Done well, this is the ultimate magic casement in the middle of your screen, a window on another world.
