Samizdata Blogging Glossary

Samizdata Blogging Glossary

Language: English

No. of terms: 115

Description: Here you will terms listed that others simply skipped or never entered to their blog glossary missing out to keep them up-to-date. Certainly worth a visit! Well done guys. (Should I start to have a rating system for the glossaries I add to my blog? Guess I should, and this one would get 4 out of 5 stars.)

Here is what the publisher say about their glossary: Like all internet formats, weblogs, also known as ‘blogs’, have developed many terms which may baffle newcomers. […]  Although this glossary does not purport to be exhaustive by any means, it is one of the most complete of its kind regarding blog terminology and it is periodically updated. Most of the terms herein really are in use but we must confess that a few are, shall we say, rather whimsical.

Example Term: Blogroach

noun. A reader who infests the comment section of a weblog, disagreeing with everything posted in the most obnoxious manner possible.

Content Marketing Glossary

Content Marketing Glossary

Language: English

No. of terms: 8

Description: Too small to be called a glossary, but at least a try by Viviani Associates. When coming to rather new areas the value of a glossary lies mainly in the fact that it give you a very fast overview of related terms. So there is not much to learn about content marketing in a glossary of 8 terms, but on one page you already see a kind of net of relations only by looking at the terms added to the glossary.

In this case they are: White paper, E-Book, E-Newsletter, Webinar, Wiki, Blog, Podcasts, and Video content, vodcasts, vlogs.

Example Term: Blog
A personal website written by someone who is passionate about a subject and wants the world to know about it with the benefits rubbing off on the company that he or she works for; easiest and simplest way to get your thought leadership ideas out and into the market.

Just a short remark: the above definition isn’t too relevant when it comes to marketing and corporate blogging, is it.
