Blogging 101




Blogging 101 is mostly about the blogging



vocabulary. To understand blogs, you need to know



the terms blog, platform, domain, and web host.



Once you have mastered these key elements of



blogging, you can enter any conversation about



blogging with confidence. After you know what



exactly a blog is, you will be on your way to



passing the final exam of blogging 101.





Blog is short for weblog, which simply means a



series of online posts presented in reverse



chronological order. That's all! Most blogs are text,



but there are also photo blogs and video blogs. The



rest of blogging 101 has to do with the technical



side of things. If you are setting up a blog, you will



need a platform, a web host, and a domain. A



blogging platform is a computer software program



that allows you to write posts and to update your



blog. Your platform is also what you use to design



the look of your blog, from color scheme to font



size. The web host is sort of like the virtual file



cabinet where your blog is stored. Your computer



communicates with the host when you upload or



edit a post. The domain is the online address of



your blog, and usually ends in ‘dot com'. Now that



you know what a blog is, what a platform is, and



what domains and hosts are, congratulate yourself!



You have passed blogging 101.
