The Ultimate Guide to the Use of Blogs in Teaching
Blogging is one of the eventual realization of web 2.0 technologies. It is the driving engine behind this online information revolution. Thousands of blogs are created everyday and for different purposes.
Some people blog to make money, some to share their voice with the world, some to immortalize their life events and diaries, and others blog just to vex and scam people.

One of EFF's goals is to give you a basic roadmap to the legal issues you may confront as a blogger, to let you know you have rights, and to encourage you to blog freely with the knowledge that your legitimate speech is protected.

The Life Cycle of a Blog Post
http://www.wired.com/special_multimedia/2008/ff_secretlife_1602
The Life Cycle of a Blog Post, From Servers to Spiders to Suits — to You
Great diagram visualisation
You have a blog. You compose a new post. You click Publish and lean back to admire your work. Imperceptibly and all but instantaneously, your post slips into a vast and recursive network of software agents, where it is crawled, indexed, mined, scraped, republished, and propagated throughout the Web. Within minutes, if you've written about a timely and noteworthy topic, a small army of bots will get the word out to anyone remotely interested, from fellow bloggers to corporate marketers

State of the Blogosphere 2008
Welcome to Technorati’s State of the Blogosphere 2008 report, which will be released in five consecutive daily segments.
Since 2004, our annual study has unearthed and analyzed the trends and themes of blogging, but for the 2008 study, we resolved to go beyond the numbers of the Technorati Index to deliver even deeper insights into the blogging mind.
For the first time, we surveyed bloggers directly about the role of blogging in their lives, the tools, time, and resources used to produce their blogs, and how blogging has impacted them personally, professionally, and financially. Our bloggers were generous with their thoughts and insights.

The Corporation in a Blogging World (Podcast Audio - Interview)
Scoble and Israel are the authors of the book Naked Conversations: How Blogs are Changing the Way Businesses Talk with Customers, published in 2006. While many blogs started as personal journals, the authors believe that they can be an important way for businesses to interact with the public. This allows the blog to represent the corporation.
In an interview format, hosted by Shannon Clark, the event organizer, Robert and Shel discuss the background of their book, including its creation and development as part of a blog.
Much of the presentation is devoted to questions and comments from the audience, discussing such issues as the difference between group and individual blogs, as well as how corporate bloggers are dealing with the possible tension between authority and freedom of expression.

Big in Japan : Blog Tools
Big in Japan is an integrated toolkit for prosumer bloggers.
We started off by building little widgets that helped us in our daily Web lives (for our consultancy Weblogs Work and our own blog projects). We built a URL shortener with Web 2.0 features called elfURL. And some other things. Then we decided that it would be even better to have an integrated workbench so we could mash up widget functionality as we liked. Enter Big in Japan is a set of Ruby on Rails apps touched up with with Ajaxian gee whiz-ardry. Built to mash.

Google BLOG Search
Blog Search is Google search technology focused on blogs. Google is a strong believer in the self-publishing phenomenon represented by blogging, and we hope Blog Search will help our users to explore the blogging universe more effectively, and perhaps inspire many to join the revolution themselves.
Your results include all blogs, not just those published through Blogger; our blog index is continually updated, so you'll always get the most accurate and up-to-date results; and you can search not just for blogs written in English, but in French, Italian, German, Spanish, Korean, Brazilian Portuguese and other languages as well.

Legal Guide for Bloggers
Whether you're a newly minted blogger or a relative old-timer, you've been seeing more and more stories pop up every day about bloggers getting in trouble for what they post.
Like all journalists and publishers, bloggers sometimes publish information that other people don't want published. You might, for example, publish something that someone considers defamatory, republish an AP news story that's under copyright, or write a lengthy piece detailing the alleged crimes of a candidate for public office.

The state of blogging
http://www.pewinternet.org/2005/01/02/the-state-of-blogging/
By the end of 2004 blogs had established themselves as a key part of online culture.
Two surveys by the Pew Internet & American Life Project in November established new contours for the blogosphere: 8 million American adults say they have created blogs; blog readership jumped 58% in 2004 and now stands at 27% of internet users; 5% of internet users say they use RSS aggregators or XML readers to get the news and other information delivered from blogs and content-rich Web sites as it is posted online; and 12% of internet users have posted comments or other material on blogs.
Still, 62% of internet users do not know what a blog is.

A Bloggers' Code of Ethics
Some bloggers recently have been debating what, if any, ethics the Weblog community should follow. Since not all bloggers are journalists and the Weblog form is more casual, they argue they shouldn't be expected to follow the same ethics codes journalists are.
CyberJournalist.net has created a model Bloggers' Code of Ethics, by modifying the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics for the Weblog world. CyberJournalist.net follows this code and urges other Weblogs to as well.
