What Makes a Website a Blog?

I love this. Jason over at Weblogs, Inc. goes off on faux blogs.

The first three items are essential, the last two are common. Now, you don’t have all five of these items to be a blog, you can have three or four and still be a blog in my mind, but if you have one or two of these items you’re probably a faux blog or a website.

  1. Unedited content.
  2. Comments.
  3. Reverse chronological order of content.
  4. Frequent linking to other sites.
  5. Frequently updated.
  6. Honest and fair with corrections.
