2. A typical blog

Most blogs have very similar format but they can look vastly different by using a 'theme' to style the blog.

The image below shows a Teach-ICT blog (we no longer run it). We could change the style theme a bit later but all the cateogories and stories will remain the same, they will just look different.

Typical blog


With ours, you see the stories in the centre, then on the right, there are a set of categories. Each story is indexed to one or more categories. Visitors can then pick a category to see all the related stories.

The Blog software takes care of all the complications, all the author has to do is allocate categories in the first place.
