Additionally, blogs are usually defined by what they generally are, rather than trying to provide a specific definition. According to a blog post titled “Blogging to Teach Reading,” blogging is about reading first, especially about reading what is of interest to you, your culture, or your community (Richardson, 2007). It is also about your ideas. It is about engaging with the content and with the authors of what you have read—reflecting, criticizing, questioning, and reacting. If a student has nothing to blog about, it is not because he or she has nothing to write about or has a boring life.

Other tools such as Google Reader, and Pageflakes exist to find, aggregate, and read blogs. In summary, blogs offer a blogger the ability to archive content that is posted by date. The commenting feature of blogs allows for immediate feedback by those reading a post. The content posted to a blog can include text, images, files, audio, and video. Publishing posts to an intranet or the Internet can be done quickly and easily. Blogs are so simple to create and edit that they are ideal for the classroom teacher or school librarian.

Weblogs could also be described as websites that are easily created and updated by those with even a minimum of technology knowledge. You don’t have to know complicated codes because blog publishing is now almost as easy as sending e-mail. You just log in to your blog site from any Internet connection, enter the content in a typical Internet form, press a button, and your weblog is updated. Blogs can display not only text, but pictures, video, and audio, and can even store other files to link to such as Microsoft PowerPoint presentations or Microsoft Excel spreadsheets.
