Glossary of BLOGging Part 1

Apakah Glosari? atau bahasa omputehnye Glossasry.
Sebutan ~ /ˈgläsərē/  /ˈglô-/
glossaries, plural

Glosari bermaksud senarai abjad terma atau perkataan-perkataan yang ditemui di dalam atau berkaitan dengan subjek tertentu, teks, atau dialek,dengan penjelasan; kamus ringkas, atau  satu senarai istilah dalam bidang ilmu tertentu berserta dengan takrifannya secara ringkas. Biasanya, glosari diletakkan pada akhir sebuah buku yang mengandungi istilah-istilah yang digunakan dalam buku tersebut. Istilah-istilah tersebut sama ada masih baru ataupun tidak lazim penggunaannya. Melalui artikel ni, aku akan cuba mengupas terma yang selalu digunakan oleh blogger dan akan disusun sebagai ringkasan glosari blog. Bahasa yang digunakan kat sini adalah bahasa yang mudah difahami oleh newbie blogger macam aku untuk lebih paham asas dalam blogging tu sendiri. Kesemua terma ni bukan dibuat oleh aku tapi sekadar koleksi yang dicari  dan juga terma yang aku gunakan dalam ni bukanlah di amik terus dari kamus dewan bahasa tapi di amik dari pendekatan individu dimana amat mudah untuk kita fahami. okey?? heheh

tak larat aku nak translate semua ni ke bahasa melayu sebab banyak orang yang guna glosari ni pon sebut atau taip dalam bahasa inggeris. Oleh itu, kalau tak paham, check kamus yek.. hehehe
