24 Hours Later...

Well, I'm sitting in my IN500 class waiting for my web site to be marked, and I've remembered I had to post another blog 24 hours after my next blog... so yea, here it is!

From this point on-wards, I will be updating the Blog on a weekly basis. My initial intent for this Blog was strictly for meeting the requirements to my IN500 Course at Tech, but this little niche of mine on the net has sorta grown on me, and has inspired me to continue updating this Blog with tidbits of my life.

I hope you will all enjoy the entries as much as I like doing them.

What is a Blog?

A Blog, or Weblog, is a web page that serves as a publicly accessible personal journal for an individual. Typically updated daily, blogs often reflect the personality of the author, and are generally sorted in chronological order.

The subject matters can vary, as a blog gives each user their own voice/opinion on the web. It is also a good communicative technique to keep in contact with overseas friends and family.

Many people use a blog just to organize their own thoughts, while others command influential, worldwide audiences of thousands. Professional and amateur journalists use blogs to publish breaking news, while personal journalers reveal inner thoughts.
