Would you call it a weblog? (11 posts)

    I've started a site to publish the works of CH Spurgeon in a modern blog format. I believe the weblog format makes the documents more accessible to readers by having site search capabilites, archive page, categories etc. However would you still classify it as a blog? Any opinions on this? Check it out at spurgeon.theoblogy.com
    Any comments will be welcomed.

    Clasification is over rated. Call it what you want. Blog sounds fine to me.

    Blogs are evolving. So calling this a blog just helps that evolution. Regardless of what you would call it, it just shows how flexible and adaptable the medium is.

    Thanks guys, for all the feedback. What I like about WordPress is its simplicity. I really loved the 5 minute install. It really worked the first time for me. But then WordPress is also able to scale as required. As I learn more about the software I really appreciate its flexibility as a publishing tool rather than just a blogging software.
    In addition the support forum is really helpful for new users, but I feel that the documentation can be improved quite a bit.
    Setting up this site has been a great learning experience for me. Thanks to the great work by the developer team and also to all the volunteer gurus in the support forum.

    I forgot to mention that the template used is Root's Gemini.
    Root, thanks for sharing it with the community.

    When I first discovered WordPress, I attempted to hack it into a general purpose CMS, since I am not into blogging - either reading them or writing them. I decided to use something else for the CMS, but I still use WordPress on two sites, neither one of which is a blog, in the generally-accepted sense of the word.
    On my business site, I use WordPress as a sort of "What's new" running ticker of activities and news.
    On my personal site, I simply use WordPress as an easy way to add content to a site that has been evolving constantly since 1995. Perhaps this site will evolve into a blog, owing to the WordPress influence.

    Yup. So far so good, and it's also running on 1.3 Alpha 2.
