About Blogs and the COLA Blog
A blog (short for web log) is a series of entries published (posted) online. Typically they are a mix of text and photos, and many have videos and other features. Some people write blogs about what happens in their daily life, about world events or about their community. Blogs are relatively easy to write and can be accessed by anyone on the Internet.
The COLA blog was created to provide updates and interesting information about the off-leash areas in Seattle.
If you are thinking of writing a blog entry, expect it to take between 30 and 60 minutes to write an entry, including proofing. If you are planning to include photographs, plan for another 20 to 30 minutes the first entry or two. After that, it should become somewhat quicker.
Organization of the COLA Blog
The COLA blog is indexed by off-leash area and blogger, so you can view all of the blog entries, or just those for a particular OLA or by a particular blogger.
In order to blog, you must have a login ID and password. If you are interested in blogging for COLA but do not have a login ID, contact COLA.
