I am woefully green when it comes to writing my web log.

I’ve noticed that most people never seem to change what they’ve written – despite sometimes glaring inaccuracies. I follow a few ‘blogs pretty closely, but probably wouldn’t notice if someone changed a previous post.

My question is this: Are there generally accepted standards of practice for personal web logs?

Since web logs are about publication without rules, I doubt that such a thing exists. I also doubt anyone would follow them if they did exist.

The only mention of web log standards I’ve found so far, is from Array: 02/11/2000. If my search turns up nothing else, maybe I’ll just write my own.

Still a bit green...
