Podcast: What is a Blog?

What is a blog? Why do people blog? How do you start your own blog? Listen to this podcast of the Your Day radio show where Phil Yanov (that's me) and Eric Rodgers talk about what blogging is and why people do it.

The blogging discussion begins at 44:50 in this 52 minute podcast.

Some of the things we talked about (or should have):
  • The most popular blogs in the blogosphere are listed at Blogpulse.
  • The birthday of this blog is actually June 2002, I launched the original philyanov.com website in 1998, but my first post to this blog is here.
  • Looking for a blog on a particular subject? Start your search at Technorati. Type in any word and Technorati will tell you who is posting on that topic.
  • Want to start your own Blog? There are lots of choices, but we'd recommend Blogger.com as great place for beginners to start. You can have a blog running in just minutes.
