I really like handwritten yes/no type flowcharts.
This one shows how to pick a blog platform.
One of my favorite weblogs, because it is so well-written. Real Lawyers Have Blogs is by Kevin O’Keefe. He helps attorneys to understand the value of weblogs. The information there is applicable to anyone really, not just attorneys. He also has a hosting service for web logs. Many weblogs are free-ranging ramblefests, but this one is concise and interesting.
It took me a while to figure this out (guess I’m a little slow…) Blogs are great, but you don’t want to hop all over reading each one that you like every day.
It’s best to use a blog reader. I use Feed Demon It only costs $25. There are free readers out there too.
Once you install it, add whatever blogs interest you. Go to the blog that you like (Feed Demon as a brower that looks like explorer.) Go to the “Syndicate this Site,” “XML” or similar symbol at the blog you like, click it and then click “Add new channel” in Feed Demon. The blogs are grouped by topic in Feed Demon, like “Legal” or “Wine”. You can read each blog in each topic individually or, cooler yet, group all of those under one topic as a “newspaper.”
