a blog is not a blog unless there’s five things.obert Scoble says
- Ease of publishing.
- Discoverability. (Pings weblogs.com or technorati or another ping server).
- Conversationality. (Trackbacks or as-they-happen referer logs, or now being part of Technorati and other blog search engines).
- Linkability. (All posts should have permalinks).
- Syndicatability. (All content should be available in RSS feeds).
I agree with Robert that if you ain’t got those five, as well as comments, which I presume Robert would include in ‘conversationality,’ then don’t call your stuff a blog.
