More about archives The preceding section explains that blog programs create a unique page for each entry. The two reasons for this are linkability (when you want to point to a specific entry) and continuity — the unique pages are an archive of the entire blog. Archiving is important. You might think that the immediacy of blogs makes past entries obsolete, but the opposite is true. Blogs represent a history of a person’s writing. It can be fascinating to dive into a blog’s past, and most software encourages visitors to do that by linking to archived posts in a variety of ways: ߜ On the index page, at least a few days’ worth of entries are presented.

Will you link to stories about which you can be critical? Is unabashed enthusiasm your style? Do you want to project an acerbic persona or a gentler voice that readers trust to recommend items of interest around the Web? Serious or funny? Deep or superficial? One editorial attitude that particularly characterizes blogs is called snark. Snark can be sarcasm, ill temper, scathing criticism, cynicism, or any combination of grouchy attributes. Snarky writing is like a badge of honor for many bloggers, but more than that it represents a certain know-it-all informality of the genre.

Blogging at these sites fits in with the overall tone of instant chumminess. Nearly always, blog content in social networking services is personal, like a diary. You see a lot of chit-chat blogging in these clubs. But the truth is that you can use any blog space for any purpose whatsoever. It is my informal observation that serious topical blogging usually occurs in the pure-blog services that don’t offer all the communal, meet-and-greet features. Pure-blog services frequently offer a more sober, uncluttered, professional presentation of the blog.
