Blog or Web log is flexible way of publishing content online over time. There are no rules because content has to be updated. If it’s not dynamic, you’re hosting a static website on a blog network/interface. That can be isolating. Not just post topics (also known as the “what I had for breakfast today” blogs).

So blogging is building a network (which informs content) and filtering it (by publishing opinions).

Since this is pretty meta, here’s what I mean. Picture from a user on my Twitter feed:

A blog is not a model for publishing. So, there’s no rules for blogging. They really have to start with the source blogger. Update if there’s a problem. Make a content change. Take a break from topic changes. Change format: post lists or feature other entries. Once the blog is back on track (see diagram), focus on writing again. If there’s not a model out there for what you want to do, leave it open-ended.

You can leave reactions or suggestions here on this post. Thanks, everyone.

Here’s a playlist to watch Obsession on YouTube.

Facebook

Facebook applications are borderline annoying to manage but if your site doesn’t do advertisements, you gotta promote somehow. So, check out the Foshowley blog network on Facebook.

If you get that far, please consider joining or at least writing “(your name) waz here” on the page’s wall for kicks.

History of the Internet: Revealed!

People who know me know one of my favorite parts of blogger bootcamp is learning the stories about how the internet was “invented” and why people do the things they do online. So, I’ll be posting about the different theories out there that I find interesting and entertaining. It’s not meant to belittle anyone just poke fun at the chaos that is the internet and the anxiety of being human… and maybe find some answers that make sense.

Heavy Metal on Inside Islam

Here are my thoughts on democracy in the Middle East and Heavy Metal Islam, a book by Mark LeVine.

The fight over what Islam means in the world today is an increasingly critical one and, from the Iraq war to heavy metal music, the world struggles to articulate what it means in a modern sense.Mark’s work reveals that the debate is complicated and there are a spectrum of opinions, voices and meanings even in everyday life. He uses the universal language of music to articulate the diversity of Islam in contemporary times.

It was an interesting topic to think through so I’m linking to it on Foshowley. I hope you find it interesting as well and worth discussing. Also, I just made commenting easier on the Inside Islam site. If you have any reactions, will you leave them there? They’re much appreciated.
