What is Blogging? Blog posts have a subject, header and body Posts are actually arranged in reverse chronological order, which means that when you visit a blog on the web, the latest story will appear at the top of the website. Blog posts most usually have comments - a way that readers can respond to what's been said. Blogging invites conversation. Blog posts have a time and date stamp - so that readers know how recent the post is. Good Blogging assumes you will write something new at least once a day
