What is Videoblogging The videoblog is a subset of the more typical blog or weblog. Weblogs started out as a form of personal website. They consist of frequently updated posts arranged in reverse chronological order. Each post can stand alone. Usually the reader can add comments to each post. For a more thorough explanation on weblogs see: XXX [this is where I'm supposed to add a reference]. A videoblog is simply put a weblog where the focus for the post is on a video segment. The written text exist mainly to provide a context for the video. Unlike the traditional weblog where the written text exist mainly to provide context and/or context for the links. Other weblog sub-genres exist for other types of expression: Photoblogs for photos and audioblogs for pure audio. The blog structure is not only being used for personal websites anymore. Both corporations and political candidates are using the blog structure to show that their websites are dynamic and frequently updated. I will only focus on personal websites in this document. The reason is that with corporations, organizations and political candidates the blog is a part of a larger market communication and organizational structure. Therefore it is more complex than a personal website and beyond the scope is this document. - Andreas -- Personal: <http://www.solitude.dk&gt; File Thingie - PHP File Manager <http://www.solitude.dk/filethingie/&gt;
