Product Description

Who Let the Blogs Out? Blogs--or weblogs--are a huge phenomenon on the internet. From ultra-personal diary entries to specialized information on a wide variety of subjects (teen ranting to presidential campaigns), blogs are the new way to create a virtual community that can effect real-world change. It's not hard to set up a blog, but it can be difficult adjusting to life in the "Blogosphere." One of the first blogging ... Full description

4.0 out of 5 stars Glad you let the blog's out!. 27 Dec 2006
I have nearly finished reading this book and i have found it a very interesting read.It is almost impossible to write a book on blogging that is completely up to speed,the technology just moves to fast;this book is no exception.However it has confirmed to me that everything i am doing on my blog so-far is right.

If you want a comforting and board-um killing exercise read this book,even if you are a experienced blogger!.If you are just getting into blogging,or you are thinking of starting a blog this book is a must.

Biz stone tells you everything obout the history of blogging,code,and how to publicize your blog over the net.It also tells you what not to do(this will stop the internet bogyman getting you)...Thanks for a good read Biz.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Smart Overview of the Blogosphere 16 Dec 2004
By elemenoP - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A nice refresher for those familiar with blogs--even better, it's an easy, readable intro for those mystified/confused by blogging and curious about its history.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kind of like a blog itself... 17 May 2005
By John Dewey Remy - Published on
The book itself is cioppino mix of everything from code snippets to advice to reflective essays. It's a quick read, fun for someone like me who's immersed in blogdom and willing to gloss over the stuff I already know while picking out the nuggets that when implemented, will transform me into a Blogger Extraordinaire. It's eclectic and blog-like in its coverage of the weblog phenomenon. It might make a good non-technical intro to blogging.

I especially enjoyed Stone's discussion of "The Strength of Weak Ties" and how blogs fit into the weak network scheme of disseminating information, fads, job opportunites, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars I highly recommend this book 20 Sep 2006
By reader - Published on
Biz Stone's book is an excellent introduction to the blog. It's written in a conversational style and I like the humor. I've read a few others about the topic, so this isn't the first of this kind for me. He gives an account that is accessible to someone who has never started a blog, and he makes the world of blogging look interesting if not fascinating. Yes it does read like a printed blog and is very instructive about keeping blogs, development of blogging, and their social interactions and implications. I think that many prople would aspire to his high level of quality in execution of the electronic word transmuted into the printed page. I highly recommend this book for both the casual reader and someone who is already moderately skilled.

Biz has a lot of tallent !

Not only his writing is funny, interesting, usefull and profound, but it also holds attention I devored it like it was a detective story !
