Wired Infographic on The Life Cycle of a Blog Post

The Life Cycle of a Blog Post

The current issue of Wired has a great Infographic by Build showing what goes on behind the scenes when you publish a blog post.

You have a blog. You compose a new post. You click Publish and lean back to admire your work. Imperceptibly and all but instantaneously, your post slips into a vast and recursive network of software agents, where it is crawled, indexed, mined, scraped, republished, and propagated throughout the Web. Within minutes, if you’ve written about a timely and noteworthy topic, a small army of bots will get the word out to anyone remotely interested, from fellow bloggers to corporate marketers.
