Rediff article on Blogging

Rediff has an article on the basics of blogging. Most of the terms have been explained quite well. A friend of mine (a non-blogger) asked me about Blogrolls and I found it quite difficult to answer the same (my answer was something like this: “ When another blogger provides a link to your blog in his blog then it is called a Blogroll”). From now on I’ll forward such articles and ask them to read it from here.

Good part about the article is that they have written about other blogging tools (Blogger, Xanga and Live Journal) as well. Bad thing is that most of the blogs introduced are of bloggers who use Rediffblogs.

Popular S’pore blogger’s blog and mails hacked

Xiaxue, a popular Singapore blogger was in for a surprise when she opened her blog today. Somebody had hacked it and deleted all the contents. To her agony, she also found out that the same person had hacked into her Gmail account and deleted more than 3000 mails. She was so popular that some T-shirt brands used her as the brand ambassador. I have read somewhere that her blog gets 10,000 hits a day. Even though she is so popular, she is still using Blogspot.

  • Sad to read about XIAXUE - Wonder how and why....I have a doubt she is suspecting a MAN..if you read the last few lines on a MAN's Body parts.!

    Scary though.!!

    I like my BLOGSPOT and I won't trade it for anything.!

  • Was aware of this - pity and scary to think someone would go to such lengths. But it brewed from what I had told you about the conference.
