The Computer Classes at JDL are very popular, especially the beginning and introduction classes. This month (December) we are offering some more advanced classes, one of which is how to create your own Blog web page.
The library has several books on creating blogs and web pages go to the Catalog and do a subject search for Web Pages
In case you do not know what a blog is- the word itself is a combination of web log. Entries are written in chronological order and usually placed in reverse chronological order.
In class the other night one student asked why someone would want to create a blog.
My Answer is to share information, improve communication and enlarge your knowledge base.
For a great explanation of a blog go to Common Craft. com
Blogs include text and graphics and links to other blogs. Some blogs, provide news or commentary on a particular subject. Some are more like personal journals. As of September 2007, blog search engine Technorati was tracking more than 106 million blogs.
From your favorite search engine do a search for "subject blog" for example Library Blog, or book blog, or cooking blog
Here are a few examples.
