Thread: The ULTIMATE Guide For Blogging Terms

  1. The ULTIMATE Guide For Blogging Terms


    Let's make this The ULTIMATE Guide For Blogging Terms!

    Each person posts a blogging term. (If you know what the term stands for then post the meaning, if not, I'll do it).

    It can be anything, right from 'Blog' to 'FTP'.

    This list will surely help all bloggers.

    Blogger: A person who runs a blog. Can also mean, a popular blog hosting web site run by Google.

    FTP: File Transfer Protocol is a standard network protocol used to exchange and manipulate files over an Internet Protocol computer network, such as the Internet.

    PS. When this list reaches around 100 terms I'll make it into a list in alphabetical order.
