Blogging Glossary

This glossary of blogging terms is compiled to help people who are new to blogging navigate the blogosphere. Blogging has developed it’s own vocabulary that often combines different words or simply creates new ones as needed. Within this glossary are common terms used within WordPress web development and internet marketing. Throughout my website I have used many of these terms so if you find a phrase or word on my site you don’t understand simply head on back to this page.
