Before you write your first BLOG, here is some information you might find useful.

Blogs have been around for about 10 years. The word stands for ’web log’ and they’re effectively online diaries. Anyone can set one up, that’s the easy part. Thinking of something interesting to say each time you blog is the tricky bit.

Before we get to the mechanics, you need to think about why you want a blog in the first place and how often you’re going to put an entry up.

So What Is A Blog?

A blog is basically a type of website, like a forum or a social bookmarking site. As such it is defined by the technical aspects and features around it, and not by the content published inside it.

The features that make blogs different from other websites are:

  • content is published in a chronological fashion
  • content is updated regularly
  • readers have the possibility to leave comments
  • other blog authors can interact via trackbacks and pingbacks
  • content is syndicated via RSS feeds

Today blogs are being used for all sorts of purposes. You have companies that use blogs to communicate and interact with customers and other stake holders. Newspapers that incorporated blogs to their main website to offer a new channel for their writers. Individuals that created a blog to share with the world their expertise on specific topics. And so on.

We would like you to have your say and ideas and feedback on Amber Training and ATASS, write to us or even write your own blog and let us know what you think?

We hope to display all blogs sent to us though of course all blogs will have to be checked for illicit content. Other than that the sky’s the limit!
