When you have read a blog entry that allows you to make comments you will see a diagram that looks like the one below.

2. Do I need to have a blog to make a comment on this blog?

You do not need to have a blog at all. Anyone can comment on this blog. However all comments will be moderated before going live.

3. What happens when I subscribe?

When you see a little symbol like this RSS icon it means you can click on it and subscribe to the updates from the site. It uses a system called Really Simple Syndication (RSS) Sometimes the abbreviation is used instead of the symbol.

RSS is a system for sites that change content frequently like blogs, podcasts and social calendars. The RSS document or “feed,” usually has the headlines or the full text. With RSS you can subscribe to the feed and read the headlines without checking in on the site each day. You can visit the site when a headline catches your eye.

To read the RSS content you will need a “feed reader” or an “aggregator.” Popular browser based readers are Google Reader, Newsgator or Bloglines.

If you subscribe to a the reader like Google Reader, it checks your subscribed feeds regularly for new content, downloading any updates that it finds.

4. What is Creative Commons?

Creative Commons is a non-profit organization whose mission is to enable producers of work to give some of their rights to any member of the public but only on certain conditions. They have devised a sliding scale of rights that a producer can allow. They call them Creative Commons licenses.
