Blogging 101

First some links from last night: Metadata and tags, folks and tax, RSS (more) and Technorati. Here’s a good Seth Godin blog post on Bobcasting too. You should load Seth’s blog into your RSS reader if you haven’t already. He writes one of the best marketing blogs out there. If you don’t have an RSS reader, we’ll still tackle that next week in class.

Also, for next week’s class I want you to watch some vlogs (video blogs) and listen to some podcasts. Here are the links to TWiT, Rocketboom, Webb Alert, and Ask a Ninja. Feel free to explore and see some other vlogs and podcasts.

If you have iTunes on your computer, the best place to find podcasts is in the iTunes store. You can download individual podcasts or subscribe. You can get a ton of your favorite NPR shows (This American Life, Day by Day, Diane Rehm, etc.), listen to speeches, and even download the Sunday talk shows, among the many professional podcasts. More fun, though, are the random podcasts. Dawn and Drew anyone?

For your blog entry this week, talk some exploring podcasts and Vlogs and what you chose to listen to. Do you regularly  listen to any podcasts?

Next week in class, we’ll be talking more about what makes a good blog and some of the various formats blogs have taken. Here are the blogging tips from last week’s class (read them if you haven’t), as well as some other tips here, here, and here. Let me know how your blogging goes. I’ll let you know next week if I think you’re terrible off-base blogging-wise. In most cases, no news from me is good news.
