What Is A Blog?

I wrote a blog post a ways back called Posting, Subscribing, and Tagging that I think was one of my best posts.

In that post, I argued that:

Blogging is not limited to posting a short blast of text
into Blogger, Typepad, WordPress, or Live Journal.

Blogging is way bigger than that.

Anytime a user posts their content on the web in a place they
control for the world to consume, they are blogging.

The reason I bring that back up is that I have added a "blog" to my blogroll on the right column that is one of my favorite reads right now.  It’s from my friend Mark Ghuneim and I call it Media Eater.

If you are interested in the intersection of media, entertainment, technology, and the internet, you should subscribe via RSS.

And this "blog" was not created in any of the standard blogging platforms.  It’s a delicious page.  But a delicious page like very few others I read.  It feels a lot like a blog to me.  Check it out and see for yourself.

When we made our investment in delicious, my friend Scott said that to him delicious was a next gen blogging platform. I didn’t get it at the time. Now I do. Thanks guys.
