Blog #14 Taylor Wisnieski

      While reading What We're Doing When We Blog I found two hotspots that were interesting to me. The first one i found interesting was when it said, "The articles' authors are rarely webloggers themselves, which places them in the unenviable position of describing and defining weblogs based on observations, not experience." (Melzer 294). This was interesting to me because someone else is trying to describe a weblog that they did not write just off of an observation which could very well be a wrong observation of what the weblogger is trying to say.
       Another hotspot I found to be interesting was, that in a blog you will always find the most recent information at the top of the page. It's kind of like a newspaper where the most recent and important information will be on the front page. It goes on to explain that they do this because it allows the reader to find the most important information without having to search for it. Also if new content has been added it's easy to see as soon as the page is loaded. By having these things it sets up an expectation that the readers will return to see what else is new since they were last logged on.
