A while back I shared 53 blogging terms and acronyms to help new bloggers become familiar with common blogging lingo spoken in the blog-o-sphere.
There is so much to learn when you start a blog that it can be overwhelming for new bloggers trying to soak everything up.
Besides learning the ropes to create great content and drive traffic to your blog, there is also the jargon.
When I started blogging, I was VERY confused with all the lingo. There were times I stayed up late reading all I could to become familiar with blogging terms and acronyms. Eight years later there is still much to learn!
