By Hugh Hewitt, published by: Nelson Books, 2005, 225 pgs.
This book introduced me to Blogs and Blogging. I heard people referring to ‘Blogs’, but really didn’t know what they were, except I knew that they were on the internet. Hugh Hewitt took the mystery out of it for me, and brought the ‘cookie jar’ down where I could get into it. I got really excited about being part of a ‘new reformation’, this blog is the result.
The first 6 chapters (Parts I & II) are basically about the recent effects of blogging, particularly on the political scene. It was Part III (Chapters 7-13, & Conclusion) that got me started participating–first as a reader & consumer; next, as a real participant. This book was a good introduction for me. It was admittedly weak on the technical side, but gave me adequate clues in Chapter 13-“Getting Started: The Technology”, to find the necessary information to actually start this blog the NEXT DAY, after finishing the book.
