The Anatomy Of A Blog
The general structural elements of a blogs
All blogs have a title that is displayed prominently at the top of the blog main page as well as subsequent blog archive pages. The next is the posting date, followed by the title of the individual post along with the content of the post. The footer area of the post, where the posting time is usually displayed, the post author's name is important when posting to a group blog because readers will want to know exactly which member of the group blog posted this particular bit of content.
The blog comments provide an outlet for users to weigh in on posts you've written, to offer alternative perspectives on situations, or to tell anecdotes that might offer guidance in some situations.
The final element is the sidebar. Blog templates, especially the stock Blogger templates, almost always have a side column built into them, for the placement of author information, blogrolls, popular post, recent post and other links of interest to the author.
