This is the final post on the blogging terms you need to know series.
Header – The Header is the very top part of your blog where the name of your business goes. You’ll find Kurt Kummerer.com – How To Make It Online in my header. You can create a custom logo for your business that you can place in the header area.
Footer – Your footer is at the bottom of the blog. Currently my footer contains the categories for which I have written blog posts for. Utilize the footer how you see fit. There is no right or wrong way as it is all a matter of personal preference.
Sidebar – A sidebar is the area usually on the far right hand side of the blog where you see opt-in forms, banner ads, etc. Typically there is only one sidebar on a blog. I happen to have a primary and secondary sidebar on my blog. I have an opt-in form and my twitter feed in the primary sidebar and secondary sidebar I have banner ads. The two different sidebars allow me to take advantage of every inch of real estate on my blog.
