BBC Radio Launches Tech Blog, Sort Of
The BBC moves in mysterious ways regarding blogs, it often seems to me. Earlier this week, one of the BBC’s UK domestic radio stations…
It’s called the Technology Blog with the strapline “Keep up with the latest gadgets, games and gizmos.” It has no trackback capability, however, and to comment you have to send an email (through a form).
It does have an RSS feed (good move), but the link to it isn’t anywhere visible on the site and it’s not auto-discoverable according to FeedDemon which couldn’t find it. However, the live bookmark feature in Firefox did: http://www.bbc.co.uk/fivelive/technology/blog/rss.xml
Yet when it comes to blogs, they don’t seem to do it properly. No, this isn’t a rigid view on the standard definition of a blog. It’s more about if you’re going to introduce a blog, why not do it properly so as to make it as easy as possible for visitors to engage in conversations and connect to what you have to say?
