What is the Southwest Blog?



A blog is a shortened form of the word "weblog." A blog is a different kind or form of website. A blog's content and purpose varies. Some are simply personal diaries (no lock and key here), some focus on a specific subject such as politics or travel, and some are primarily "newsy" and informational-like this one. Also, links to other sites on the web are common. You can think of a blog as a kind of instant messenger to the web. The main features of a blog which make it different from a regular website include:
  • Content is presented in an ongoing series of data entries or posts-kind of like a diary or journal
  • Typically displayed in reverse chronological order with the most recent entry on top
  • Latest news or information is easy to identifiy
  • Allows for comments regarding a specific post from the readers
  • For the nontechnical person-no knowledge of HTML or uploading files is necessary.
