Blog basics can be considered as a set of twelve sequential categories of effort, each pointing naturally to the next in the descending hierarchy. To go too far astray in any one of these aspects can result in a blog that lags behind the rest, wounded, over-particularized, partially betrayed by the lacklustre impediment.
The progression is from creating a new blog all the way to using blog posts and comments to wage war against opponents.
