Blog Info Brainstorming

This page documents thoughts toward establishing a new microformat to use when discussing, linking to, referring to blogs beyond just linking to them using a person or organization's name.

Contributors

Simple Schema

From the blog-info-examples and the existing blog-info-formats, it seems clear that a simple schema must have:

  • name of the blog
  • link to the blog
  • zero or more links to feeds for the blog
    • type of that feed
  • name of person associated with the blog (e.g. author / contributor)

Class Names

  • root class name for an item - (hBlog? hInfo? hItem?).
  • "fn" for name of blog
  • simple href link to the blog
  • "alternate"? typed href alternate links
  • "author" for stating who is blogging that blog. hCard is quite useful / flexible.

XHTML Structure

Definition List

When used in conjunction with XOXO, this could be a very useful way of outputting lists of favorites.

<dl class="hblog">
  <dt class="fn url"><a href="[link]">[Title]</a></dt>
    <dd class="author">[author hCard]</dd>
    <dd class="description">[Description]</dd>
    <dd class="alternate url"><a href="[feedlink]" class="feed">[Title]</a></dd>
    <dd class="alternate url"><a href="[homepagelink]" class="homepage">[Title]</a></dd>
    <dd>Tags: <a href="[tagspace/tag]" rel="tag">[tag]</a>, <a href="[tagspace/tag]" rel="tag">[tag]</a></dd>
</dl>
