Blog or Blogs? – A Blog has Posts not Blogs

Blog

I often hear the use of the word Blogs when referring to what I think of as Blog Posts. While there are no absolute right answers, here is how I suggest you use the terminology:

A Blog: A website or web page with multiple time-sequenced posts.

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

Post: An individual entry or article on a blog.

A 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!
