mommy, what's a blog?

of course i know - and it appears that many want to know now what a blog is - that is according to Merriam Webster - the word "blog" was the most researched term on its site in 2004.

also now blogger and livejournal aren't the only free web hosted blogging tools - check out MSN Spaces, competing with Google's Blogger and AOL's Journals. but if you want to play with the big boys and girls - register your own domain, get at some code like MT, WordPress, PMachine, Postnuke - design your own templates and start blogging.

and for those of you still wanting to earn big bucks off of this blogging thing - "On Monday, a squad of around 15 independent bloggers will begin inserting mentions of Marqui's hosted communications management services into their blogs for money.

The bloggers will get $800 a month to mention Marqui with a link once a week in their blogs and post its emblem on a page. They'll get an additional $50 per qualified sales lead they send to Marqui." - "Marqui Product Placement in Blogs," Susan Kuchinskas,

and - "In another example of how businesses are exploring the use of blogs to promote themselves, HighBeam Research has hired Weblogger and Internet personality Christopher Locke to tout its soon-to-be-unveiled blog content tool via a new Web site,

The Chicago-based company selected Locke as a colorful way of drawing attention to its new tool, which will offer bloggers a subscription to access to its content archive of 33 million articles. He will be paid an undisclosed amount to recruit and oversee a "crack team" of a few dozen high-profile bloggers who will use the HighBeam tool on their own sites as the company completes beta-testing of the product." "HighBeam Picks Locke for Blogging Initiative," Rob McGann, ClickZ News
