ESSENTIAL PARTSOF A BLOGCREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com

If blogs are online diaries, then the home page is the ‘cover’ that tells other people what to expect from your blog.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com1. HOME PAGE

The home page is the starting point where visitors can access your latest posts, categories, archives, and all the other parts of your blog.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com1. HOME PAGE

A blog header appears at the top of a blog, spans the width of the blog, and usually looks the same on all pages of a blog.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com2. HEADER

The header can include text and an image, and is used to brand the blog by giving it a specific look and feel.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com2. HEADER

Some header designs include space where a blogger can include special links or ads.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com2. HEADER

Posts (or entries) are shown in a chronological sequence (usually newest to oldest) on a single page, such as your home page or an archive of posts from a particular month or category.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com3. POSTS

A blog post can be an article, photo, audio, or video that you post on your blog. Regularly updated posts are the main reason for a blog’s being, and the only reason why readers keep coming back for more.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com3. POSTS

Once your visitors select a post to view by itself, they’ll be able to read the comments as well as your content. If your reader wants to be notified every time you add a new article, your content should go into posts.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com3. POSTS

Pages are usually used for static content, such as an About or Contact page. They are not grouped in chronological order, and each page will appear on its own screen.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com4. PAGES

Pages can be arranged in a parent/child (category/sub‐category) hierarchy, but if you need a more complex or flexible taxonomy, posts would probably work better.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com4. PAGES

A category is the general topic the post can be classified in. Usually, bloggers have 7 ‐ 10 categories for their content, and readers can browse specific categories to see all posts in the category.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com5. CATEGORIES

Archives contains links to your previous posts. You may show archived posts in different ways ‐ chronologically, alphabetically, by category, by most number of comments, or by most recently commented entries.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com6. ARCHIVES

Blogroll points the reader to your favorite blogs (or websites). When your blog is focused on a particular theme, the Blogroll section is where you tell readers about related sites that they may also find interesting.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com7. BLOGROLL

Attached at the bottom of each post is a Comments section, where readers can leave a short note to say what they think about that particular post.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com8. COMMENTS

Comments are an important part of what make blogs more exciting and interactive compared to other websites.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com8. COMMENTS

An opt‐in or subscription form on a blog is a tool that has helped catapult a lot of famous bloggers to success.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com9. OPT-IN FORM

The secret ingredient was the subscribers list ‐ readers who opt‐in or sign up for email newsletter updates, free email course, or free ebook.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com9. OPT-IN FORM

By inviting your readers to subscribe, you are effectively asking them to keep coming back, to not forget you, and to pay attention to what you have to say.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com9. OPT-IN FORM

Permalinks allow other bloggers to refer to your blog, page or post on their blogs ‐ within their blogrollsection.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com10. PERMALINKS

As its name suggests, a permalink is a permanent link that points to one of your blog posts ‐ even after it has passed from the front page, and been transferred to your archives.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com10. PERMALINKS
