» Blogging Tools

Blogging seems to have changed the world and its attitude towards free journalism. Back in 1994 this "phenomenon now called blogging was little more than the sometimes nutty, sometimes inspired writing of online diaries"; however now it seems to become an essential part of the internet culture, changing the structure of the internet and the attitudes of those who browse through the web.

A business weblog, accompanying the web-site of a solid, respectable company has become an absolute must. At the same time a personal homepage with a modest "Welcome"-invitation astonishes visitors and causes alienation and mistrust.

However, it isn't only the question of having a blog, but the question of which kind of blog you are supposed to use. I've been receiving a lot of e-mails recently, in which the visitors of Web-Dev-Bookmarks were asking me about "essential" blogging tools, which seemed to be "as essential as all the other stuff you've got in your directory". Fair enough. However, I am not willing to introduce a list, which is based on my inadequate blogging experience.

Since I am a layman, observing the development of a blogging revolution with a healthy dose of skepticism, I guess it might be reasonable to create a list based on the comments of those who are the actual bloggers.

Here are some blogging tools and resources I've found so far:

Blogging Resources

I'll be glad to receive useful tutorials to blogging, links to blogging software (blogging overview?), blog catalogs and blogging tools, which you use on a regular basis.

Internet is the basic requirement for any online business or communications. The work of hosting companies is directly related to the internet providers, because they do require landline or wireless high speed internet connections in order to provide reliable services to their clients. High flying hosting providers run latest as well as recommended servers and possess rigid file recovery systems in order to prevent any loss in data. The increase in the demand of the wireless broadband internet has fastened the work and demand of DSL provider companies as well. As not only the exams of Microsoft certification are going online but also the businesses and other entertainment activities.
