Running Circles Around Me


You would think that as a web developer and blogger, I get it. Today I learned that I'm not thinking big enough.

This morning, Mike Sansone taught me the definition of a blog. A blog is not a web log. It is not a journal. It is not a series of posts or articles.

A blog is a web page that has any manner of dynamic, changing content.

Then he went further to show me that any successful home page should be a blog, whether for a business or personal use or whatever. If it's static, no one will return.

Mike, you have no idea what you've unleashed. But man, do I owe you for the education. The curriculum's fine; it's the student who was slow.

Thanks Brett. And just to expand my thinking a bit...

In essence, blogware is a platform to publish web pages. Every web page is trying to communicate something, some are just saying the same thing day after day after day.

And you got it, a blog page is a dynamic web page that compels visitors to return - because the content is constantly changing.

P.S. I almost got sarcastic with the comment authenticator which asks, "What do you call the products that Nike makes for you to wear on your feet?" My original impulse was to type in "expensive."
