Do you know your pingbacks from your sling backs? Neither did I, till 20 minutes ago.
Some of the terms found in the blogging world are ……interesting.
I particularly like:
Vlogging – sounds like a competitive sport found at the Winter Olympics. “Jason Strauss had an UNBELIEVABLE win in the men’s downhill Vlogging championships today!”
Tumblr – “Oh bless sweetie! Did you take a tumblr down the stairs? Mummy kiss it better”.
I was very disappointed to find out that “pingbacks” are not some new ultra fashionable shoe from Milan.
Widgets – just so, so cute.
H Tags – sounds like some super cool American gangsta rapper.
However, not ALL are so twee. Some, I believe have darker, more sinister connotations
Content Management Systems (CMS) – sounds like some shady, money laundering organisation.
GIMP – I have no idea what this is and would be afraid to type this in my search engine in case the police came knocking on my door.
Followers – Need I say more?
I would LOVE to hear yours. Please, drop me a line if you have better.
Just for info: Pingbacks – a notification when another blog links back to yours. Vlogging – video blogging, Tumblr – a microblogging site H Tags – something to do with headlines/sub headings and SEO searches Widgets – useful tools for adding features Content Management Systems – (my version was so much more interesting) blogware that supports the writing and publishing of posts GIMP – Involves pictures – but you can check this one! Followers – what all bloggers hope to have, weirdly
