Definition: Blog Platform, Blogging Software, Blogware, Content Management System (CMS)

This is part of a series called “The Blogger’s Dictionary”, we’ll be defining everything to do with blogging every Wednesday and Friday for the time being!

We know they can be hosted, or self-hosted, but what actually is a blogging platform?

Blogger, WordPress, Moveable Type, Tumblr, are all examples of blogging platforms, and that is they are the core of your blog. They are what makes your blog actually work – allow you to create posts without hand-coding HTML and CSS to create a website. Essentially they are a form of software on the internet which were created to make the process of blogging itself and blog maintenance easier.

This is the last blog post before Christmas, I will be back on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday next week and then posting daily after the new year!
