Put-in-Bay, Ohio is the Key West of the North to many so our blogs often relate to islands, lakes, travel, entertainment, and local happenings.

Quick Put-in-Bay Things To Do

Kids, adults, and seniors alike will find their own special attractions on South Bass Island. One of the best parts of it all is that all the attractions are located on an island! Some say one of the best attractions is riding the Put-in-Bay ferry boat that travels across Lake Erie (we’ve blogged about it!). Families and groups love the freedom to rent a Put-in-Bay golf cart during their visit and cruise the island attractions at their own leisurely pace. Put-in-Bay is one of the few places where you can drive a golf cart legally on the road just like a car! If you are not interested in a golf cart rental, our Put-in-Bay taxis are a great alternative to get around.

What is a Blog?

Here are a few very simple definitions that can get you started.

  • A blog originally came from the word weblog or a web log.
  • You can think of it as an online journal or diary, although blogs are used for much more now, like online journalism.
  • A blogger is someone who blogs or writes content for a blog. They could be someone who works at a Put-in-Bay restaurant full time and blogs as a hobby, for example.
  • Blogging is the act of writing a post for a blog.

Here are some more in-depth definitions if the first ones were too simple.

  • A blog is a type of website which has posts (or entries) appearing in reverse chronological order.
  • Blog posts typically appear with the most recent blog post (or entry, post) first, just like a diary or journal.
  • A blog is typically updated frequently and regularly, although there are some who are considered slow bloggers.
  • Blogs typically have an area for people to comment or respond to the blog post. Readers often post their thoughts about the topic, or about their Put-in-Bay lodging accommodations.
  • Blogs may also have other areas of content and links to other websites.
  • Blogs can have individual authors or be a collection of authors.
  • Blogs have a history or an archive of previous blog posts.

Now, if you do blogging for a living, these may be richer and deeper definitions of a blog.

  • A blog is a collection of content that is organized repetitively. This content can take the form of basic words (copy) as well as rich media (audio, video, and embeddable objects).
  • A blog typically focuses on a particular subject matter for clarity, focus, and
  • A blog can be built by hand, manually through writing the post, uploading to a website via FTP, and then publishing.
  • A blog can also be managed by software, sometimes called a CMS (Content Management System), where a lot of the features are automatically created and populated.
  • A blog typically can be read in a number of different formats including the homepage, single post page, categories, tags, and also via RSS and other such syndication technologies.
  • Readers and visitors can subscribe to the blog so that they can consume the content in a variety of different means, tools, devices, and applications. Blogs can appear on big information sites like this one, or on smaller individual business websites like The Put-in-Bay Island Club Home Rentals.
  • A blog today could take the form of microblogging (like Twitter, Posterous, Tumblr), vlogging (video blogging), and more which can focus on a particular type of content or technology.
