Blog or Blogs? – A Blog has Posts not Blogs

, ,
Blog

I often hear the use of the word Blogs when referring to Blog Posts.

Blog: A single website or web page with multiple posts.

Blogs:  Multiple websites containing posts (not the posts themselves)

Post: An individual entry on a blog.

BlogA blog is short for weblog. A weblog is a website consisting of entries (posts) that are displayed in reverse chronological order with the most recent post appearing first. “Blogs” refers to the universe of blogs – not to individual posts. Blogs are created using software like WordPress or TypePad. Blogging is a verb that means writing posts (not writing blogs).

So if you are wondering if you have ‘blogs” on your blog…. you actually have posts… If you have multiple blogs (multiple websites or multiple subject blogs, each with sequential posts), then you might refer to the collection as ‘blogs’.

Good luck marketing, selling and blogging!
