  1. 1. ESSENTIAL PARTSOF A BLOGCREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com
  2. 2. 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
  3. 3. 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
  4. 4. 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
  5. 5. 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
  6. 6. Some header designs include space where a blogger can include special links or ads.CREATE YOUR FIRST BLOG WITH ALEKwww.AlekStanojevic.com2. HEADER
  7. 7. 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
  8. 8. 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
  9. 9. 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
  10. 10. 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
  11. 11. 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
  12. 12. 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
  13. 13. 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
  14. 14. 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
