Why does this classification help?

Blogs in general are an useful medium to converse & express ones thoughts and its also a place holder to point to things of interest. However,  separating the content and link blogs, gives better focus to each category. For example, In the last few days cuz of my busy schedule, I have tended to point to interesting pieces of information that I come across rather than my usual penning of my thoughts.

Tools support for creating link blogs?

<Need more info> Wonder how Erik posts his links. The alternative to having a link blog is to just post a bunch of quick links under a links category.

  1. There’s another sub-genre of blogs that you didn’t mention: anonymous blogs.

    “ lets you publish a weblog using GPG and the Mixmaster anonymous remailer network. You don’t ever have to reveal your identity – not even to us. You don’t have to trust us, because we’ll never know who you are.”

  2. Nice observation Arjun! My favorite remains Eric’s link blog, though the term was new for me. Talking of coined-terms, I read the question of a reader the other day who asked what would you call a “Blog-reader”? May be we will have a terms for that soon πŸ™‚
