What Qualifies as a Blog?

Posted 17 May 2009 - 07:34 PM

I have 100MB at telus

but for every entry i guess i would have to edit html

I could put up a "Blog page"
and update it every so often but how might i automate that kind of thing?
and what should it look like??

well that becomes more and more just a website. If you would like to setup an actual blog look into what your telus hosting has to offer. for something like Wordpress which is one of the most popular blogging setups you will need a MySQL and PHP server. MySQL is a a database and PHP is a server side language allowing you to have a fully functional blog that allows posting without updating each page.

If your telus doesn't have a MySQL server which for this I'm assuming it doesn't, then you can go to www.000webhost.com and connect your telus blog to the MySQL database that they can offer you for free.
If your serious about setting up a blog the $50-$70 a year by using dreamhost or godaddy would be worth it. 100mb isn't very much room to play with.

If you would like some examples of what other peoples blogs look like then look around dreamincode.net a lot of people will have links to their blogs in their signatures.

It works either way. To have a real blog in the sense of journal-like frequently published time-sensitive entries, use WordPress or Blogger.

Very true a blog is derived from web log. You can technically have a blog that is formed from HTML/CSS but generally speaking (especially with web 2.0) you are going to want to have some user integration such as comments which means you will want it to be dynamic.

Ya, use blogger or wordpress. 100 mb is hardly anything, so creating a blog on your own server by yourself will not work to well. :v: Blogger and wordpress will actually host your blog for you, so you don't need to worry about space. Plus, you will want to have comments on your blog, which could get very complicated when working on your own. Hope that helps. :)

Honestly though 50-70 a year is a small price so it doesn't hurt to go for it, that translates to maybe 12$ a month or so and I've seen 3 year contracts at around 120 I believe. (Or if you have guts and a good sense of security set up your own server with XAMPP for Windows or LAMPP for Linux
