Learning and understanding blogging terminology is a crucial aspect of not only starting a blog but also running a successful and profitable one. Not only is it important to know blogging terminology but it is also imperative to learn its processes.
As a former nurse, medical terminology was the foundation of my nursing practice. Now, the same concept applies to my blogging business.
However, it isn’t enough to just learn blogging terminology!

Understanding how blogging terms interconnect and comprehending its processes ensures you use them to their full potential. Implementing effective blogging strategies requires the use and combination of multiple blogging concepts.
For instance, learning the definition of email marketing won’t do you much good if you don’t also learn about opt-ins (and how to create a great one), sales funnels (and how to implement one), and what the best email marketing companies for bloggers are.
Is there such thing about blogging terminology?
Well, the truth is… blogging terminology isn’t just about blogging. Successful and profitable blogging consist of a collection of terms that go far beyond blogging itself.
Blogging terminology steps into other areas. Which without their ability to merge, blogging wouldn’t be able to flourish or even exist.
Some of those areas include coding, technology, monetization, business, marketing, social media, and graphic design.
Lets take a closer look…
Code and Technology
One of the hardest things for me in my blogging journey was learning code. I am far from an expert in coding. However, learning the basics has allowed me to have more control over some aspects of my blog.
Code is computer language. It is what goes on behind the scenes in computing. So that it shows up on the front-end as what you normally see when you use your computer.
Everything in computing is created with coding. Facebook, phone apps, your favorite websites, your blog, it all works with code.
People often question whether it’s possible to make money blogging or if it’s simply a hobby. Well, depending on how you approach it, blogging can, in fact, be a powerful money-maker.
Blogging can not only provide you with a small extra income, but it can turn into a full-blown business for those who pursue it full-force.
Learning and understanding all of the blogging monetization concepts and their strategies can definitely set you up for monetary success.
Examples of related terminology: ads, affiliate marketing, freelancing, and sponsorship.
The minute your blog begins to generate any kind of income, it has now become a business. How you go about it depends solely on you.
Understanding your options and learning the business side of your blog will ensure that not only you know how to scale your business but that you also protect your assets.
As your blog starts to grow, you will most likely begin to seek opportunities to work and collaborate with companies. That’s one of the many reasons why is important to learn some business concepts.
Examples of related terminology: sales funnel, media kits, branding, beta testing, sales pitch, and LLC.
Anyone who plans on running a successful and profitable blog will definitely be learning about different types of marketing.
Marketing is the process by which you attract and convince potential clients/ customers as to why they should invest in your products or services.
Whether it is selling your own ebooks and ecourses or putting affiliate links in your weekly newsletters, marketing is working behind the scenes.
Not only are they extremely important in running a successful and profitable blog but they both entail a great amount of strategy and understanding.
Examples of related terminology: sales funnels, sales lead, call to action, email sequences, freebies, affiliate links, affiliate disclosure, conversion rate, and ROI.
Needless to say, social media is a blogger’s powerhouse. When used to its full potential, social media has the ability to turn your blog into a lean, mean, money-making machine! LOL.
However, figuring out all of the concepts, processes, tips and tricks, doesn’t come easy. Especially, because there are so many important platforms to master (Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter).
A great resource to get help tackle all of the most important social media handles at once while helping you save time and increase conversions is Social Media Strategies for Bloggers eCourse by Alea Milham.
Examples of related terminology: shadow banning, rich pins, Pinterest group boards, Tailwind tribes, Facebook groups, Instagram stories, Instagram and Facebook live.
I can promise you I won’t be designing the next Kardashian website anytime soon!
However, this I can tell you. The graphic design skills I’ve acquired throughout my blogging journey have allowed me to customize my blog to my liking.
In addition, graphic design abilities come in handy when creating images for my social media handles (especially Pinterest Pins). Of course, thanks to tools such as Canva, graphic design can be a breeze.
Examples of related terminology: overlay, Canva, themes, parent themes, child themes, stylesheet (css), and Genesis Framework.
All in all, it is not all black and white in the blogging world. There are a lot of gray areas in between that need to be studied, learned, and tested along the way of your blogging journey.
It used to take weeks even months for bloggers to locate and research all of the blogging terminology needed to start and run a blog.
But a few weeks ago all of that changed…
I took it upon myself a few months ago to compile ALL of the blogging terminology (340+ terms to be exact). Not just terminology, but its counterparts, concepts, and process that bloggers where in need of learning.
Having been at that place myself I knew exactly what I had to do. And that was to make sure that no one went through the hassle and blogging research overwhelm again!
