Let’s briefly consider the life spans of the newspaper and the blog to begin ...

Software & Programs If you read a number of blogs, perhaps even too many blogs, then Feedly could be the best RSS blog reader for you.  Feedly weaves your favorite content into a fun, magazine-like start page. The only downside is that Feedly is built upon Google Reader and Firefox – you need both to play.  Feedly displays your Google Reader feeds in a magazine-like format, allowing you to browse over multiple categories, preview post pictures and all your ...

Comments, Balancing Risks and Benefits

Comments, Balancing Risks and Benefits
01 May 2008

Blogging As you set up your first blog, you’ll need to decide how you’ll want to manage the comments that come in. As most experienced bloggers have learned, an open “anything goes” policy has some significant drawbacks.

Comment spammers use automated Web “robots” that ...
