Talk[edit]

Nice! I've gone ahead and added the stub template, since this is a short article that could be expanded. I also added the orphan template, since there are no other pages on Wikipedia that link to this one. (Although I'm going to try and fix the orphan problem.) Good start!

New reference added[edit]

I cited an SF Chronicle article as a reference. I'm sure I can find others as well, if needed. I do have a question, though, and this is honestly not meant to be contentious, but if blogs are being used by "reliable" authors in the creation of these resources, then why are the blogs themselves not reliable? Isn't reliability subjective? Anyway, I guess that's an issue for another day. I hope the article is sufficient.

You've hit upon a touchy subject here at Wikipedia. There's a debate going on about how blogs should be treated, but the main problem is that anyone can "publish" themselves on a blog, so it loses its reliability. At least, that's how I understand the argument. Trvsdrlng (talk) 22:36, 1 February 2008 (UTC)
I would add that, if nothing else, citing blog posts about blogging presents an objectivity issue. --Spring2016Project (talk) 18:59, 24 February 2016 (UTC)

Tone Corrections[edit]

This article reads a lot like a how-to blog post - are there any objections to me going through and cleaning up tone to something a little less instructional and more informative?
