Blogs & Blogging Tips, Tools, & Resources

Need a three-column template? The WebLens blog has the low-down on the Blogger template tweak needed to create a three-column layout, plus the completed template for those in hurry. Want a regular 3 column web template? Try this one. Both are tableless designs.

The blogging phenomenon has exploded in the last few years, along with other Web 2.0 technologies. New blogs are being created at the rate of one per second according to blog-tracking company Technorati. The inclusion of this new topic in the General Search section of this web site reflects this astronomical growth, best seen in the emergence of thousands of blog search tools, blog directories, and traffic exchange programs for blogs. The immense popularity of blogging has created a new venue for serious research — weblogs are especially useful for researching technical topics, or when you are looking for people's opinions or experiences, rather than hard data — and, predictably, have also spurred a new form of spam, known as splogging. The links below will take you to sites useful for searching the blogosphere and for creating or promoting your own blog. For more blogging tips and template hacks, check out the WebLens blog.
