Glow Blogs Sites are designed for sharing. Like many publication on the internet a major aim will be to share something. Some sites will have this as their main focus. It may be sharing of resources for others: information or links to elsewhere on the web.
Sites designed to share may use different types of organisation. A site that is regularly updated may consist mainly of posts. A site with fixed or infrequently updated information may be made up of pages. Some sites may have both. The content of these pages or posts will influence the choice of theme and organisation.
