Blog and Blogging Basics

January 16th, 2009 Posted in Articles

To understand blogging is to understand its terms. You need to be familiar with the words like blog, platform, domain, and web host. Once you have mastered these key basics of blogging, you can go into any discussion about blogging with confidence. After familiarizing yourself what exactly a blog is, surely you can start one for yourself in no time.

Blog is shorter term for the word weblog, which means a succession of online posts presented in reverse sequential order. When you say blogging, it simply means posting anything you want and your blog shows the latest post you have done. That is all! Most blogs that are published are text base, but there are also others who setup photo blogs and video blogs. The rest of blogging 101 has to do with the technical side of things. If you are starting a blog, you will need a blogging platform, a web host, and a domain. A blogging platform is a computer software program that permits you to write down 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. A web host is something like a virtual file cabinet where your blog and all other data are stored. Your computer corresponds with your host when you upload or amend a post. The domain is the online address of your blog, and it usually ends in ‘dot com’, ‘dot info’, ‘dot org.’ and more.

Now that you know what is a blog and blogging, we at Mom’s Hosting can provide you with “the blogging platform and the web host.” We can host your blog using WordPress 2.7 as your blogging platform.
