A few of you have asked me what a blog is (though most of you thought the name was utterly appropriate).
The name comes from BLOGGER, a website that offers up diary-writing software, on the web. While the diary aspect of the blog is appealing, what really makes it sing for my purposes is the way the software is accessed.
While I’m browsing, reading about Steve Parris’ tough luck against Oakland, or Frank Thomas’s tough luck in this world, all I have to do is right click. One of the right-click menu choices is “Blog This”. I select it and a little wordprocessing window opens up.
Actually, there are no formatting helpers here, though I can insert html code if I remember how. Anyway, I can write what I will, press “post and publish” and the site is updated.
Which is a whole lot more immediate and friendly than trying to get the same material posted using Front Page.
Something else you should know: The Blog page isn’t password protected. It doesn’t have to be since no one but members know about it. The URL is www.peter.kreutzer.com/blogger.htm
