The term "blog" is derived from "Web log" !

Following on from my first blog about starting to blog, I had few interesting discussions with few people on the subject. Basically, everyone accepts importance of it, that's the bottom line. I still find it bit difficult to write on a daily basis because I am still not used to it, and find it hard to find few minutes for that even though I spend hours on the internet! Probably an issue with getting used to it.

This article on wikipedia explains how Blog has come strongly in to our lives..just believe, there are nearly 60 million blogs!!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blog

Hope you will entire article, because its so amazing and gives a complete picture.

If you cannot see "යසස්" which is written as "Yasas" in Sinhala using Unicode (http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0D80.pdf), it means you don't have Sinhala Unicode support on your computer.

Here are some links that can be useful for you to obtain Sinhala Unicode Software support.
http://www.fonts.lk/down.html (If you are currently using Windows)
http://sinhala.linux.lk/enabling-sinhala (If you are currently using Linux)

Additional Info
Sinhala Font Guide - From Sinhala Wikipedia (si.wikipedia.org)
The Unicode Character Code Charts By Script - From www.unicode.org
Sinhala Unicode on GNU/Linux - From Anuradha's BLOG
About Uniscribe on English Wikipedia - The Microsoft USP10.dll which is used to render Unicode-encoded text - From English Wikipedia
About Pango on English Wikipedia - From English Wikipedia

By simply having any Unicode Sinhala Font you can "atleast" see words in Sinhala Unicode that are not rendered properly.
Here is a link to one on www.fonts.lk.

http://groups.google.com/group/Sinhala-Unicode - is a Google group which discusses Sinhala Unicode related topics in Sinhala.
