Robert Scoble tells us in A blog is not a blog unless that a blog is better than a website due to the blog's ability to promote conversation in a venue that promotes easy publication and locating blogs of interest. In addition, the RSS feed and the permalinks tend to promote a community.

And yet, while I agree we should avoid labeling something a blog that is missing some of these elements, I'm not sure that the blog is better. It depends on the purpose of the site, doesn't it?

  1. I thought that a weblog used to be a set of changes (as in a changelog) for one’s website, e.g. 4/26/2006 Removed spurious semicolons that Professor Parker eschews so much.
