This is part of a series of posts (and a project-in-progress),
compiled as a glossary of terms and phrases used in blogging and social
media, that will continually be added to and modified.
Ecosystem: A community and their environment functioning as a whole. The blogosphere can be viewed as an ecosystem (See It’s the Conversation Economy, Stupid)
Ecto: A stand-alone publishing application, allowing users to compose posts offline.
Edublog: A blog site focused on education, be it teacher, administrator, consultant or student.
EFF: The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is the leading civil liberties group defending your rights in the digital world
Entry: An individual post or article published on a blog. Each of these entries, while appearing in an index, are also web pages unto themselves. (See Blog Posts are Inventory)
Event Blog: A blog specifically launched as a companion to an event (e.g. Blogger Social)
Expression Engine: A robust content management system (CMS) with plenty of features. Not a free tool.
Eye Rest: Using "gifts" in your posting to give your readers a rest. Includes images, bold text, bullet points, lists, and hyperlinks. May go against writing like your teacher taught you – but does she read your blog?
If you’ve suggestions, additions or modifications, add ‘em in a comment. Together we’re smarter.
