Blog is the abbreviation for weblog (you can have a blog inside a website or as a stand-alone blog)
Verb: To blog = to write posts (entries) in, add material to, or maintain a weblog.
Noun: A blog = a shared on-line journal where you can publish your posts (entries about your experiences, observations, expertise, and hobbies); the most recently published post appears first to readers; readers are given the opportunity to submit comments.
This post you’re reading is on my second blog (a stand-alone blog ) https://writingcoachteresa.wordpress.com/ which I started on Dec. 28, 2009.
Why multiple blogs? Because I want my work, my colleagues’ and my clients’ work to be found via multiple sources.
To get comfortable submitting comments to other people’s blogs, click on the title of a post in my blog (in order to see the entire post); scroll down to get the comment boxes.
I’d encourage any writer who do not have a website to get a blog from http:wordpress.com (so that you’ll have an on-line address for the world to see). These days, a blog serves as an answering center (give your fans a chance to find you and to communicate); you don’t have to publish your email address.
After you get your own blog and write some posts, remember to copy the keywords and key phrases (tags) in each postnd add them to the tag box for each post. Your blog will compile a list of your tags. Help search engines help people find you and your work through the tags.
