If you look at Wikipedia, there is a slight difference in their definition.

Which is…

A blog is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (post).

Though, Britannica defined theirs in a different way.

What Is An Elements

Based on the Chemical Elements definition from Britannica

Elements are the fundamental materials of which all matter is composed.

Dictionary.com uses the four elements to explain an element…

I quote…

“One of the substances, usually earth, water, air and fire, formally regarded as constituting the material universe”.

How Do Blog Elements Work?

Looking at the definition of…

  • What is a blog?
  • What is an element?

It has helped you to realize that…

The 4 elements are the fundamental elements in which a blog is being formed from or depend on.

It is like a natural inhabitants for a blog.

Or…

It’s like an environmental activity for a blog.

Just as it is to be in one element.

Example: 

  • Air is the element of air we breathe
  • Water is the element we drink
  • Land is the element we walk on
  • Fire is the element we use for burning

So that is how blog elements work, since it is equivalent to that.

Let’s go to the main point, “4 Blog Elements”.

4 Blog Elements That You Should Never Resist

The 4 blog elements are;

  • Theme
  • Plugin
  • Page And Post
  • Menu And Navigation

Blog Elements 1; THEMES

If visitors visit a website what will display in their browser, is the website theme.

A theme is the collection of files called…, “Templates“.

These templates work together in different ways.

Doing that, make a site appear or behave the way the admin wants and also satisfy the audience.

With the help of themes…, You can customize the…

  • Layout
  • Column
  • Typography
  • Design using CSS
  • Images and videos

Most themes from example…, WordPress.

They are built and include…

  • PHP files
  • CSS files
  • Images files
  • Readme txt
  • JavaScript
  • Html (Optional)

With all this, you can command your theme to appear and behave how you want it.

Remember…

A good theme improves engagement and beautifies your website frontend.

If you are using WordPress to run your site, you can download your themes from WordPress Theme Directory.

NOTE: If you interest in site speed and load time, I recommend you go for lightweight themes

Blog Elements 2; PLUGINS

Blog Elements Plugin

Apart from using themes to make a site function the way you want…, there is more to that.

This is where plugins come in.

If you view Wikipedia concerning plugin (computing), you will realize that…,

Plugin is also called Add-on.

Adverts

As one of the blog elements…, plugins are coders file packages together to extend the core functions of a blog.

Especially…, for WordPress users.

As a WordPress user…, having or creating your own plugin is like…

Extending your WordPress functionality.

It’s like having a functionality on top of what WordPress already gave you.

Just like having a theme.

But the plugin is an extended one.

If you are using WordPress for your site, you can download your plugins from WordPress Plugin Directory.

Let’s talk about the next elements.

Blog Elements 3; Page And Post

Blog Elements Post And Page

Page and post is another element that a blog depends on.

Let’s look into these two..

  • Page (Webpage)
  • Post (Website)

Page (Webpage)

A page (webpage) is a single document or solitary page for a website or blog.

To me…

I view page (webpage) as a dedicated page. The reason for this is because…

Every page (webpage) has a unique or dedicated URL link to it.

Example of a page (webpage) is;

  • About Us
  • Contact Us
  • Disclaimer
  • Disclosure
  • Privacy Policy
  • Terms And Conditions

To some people, they view the Webpage as a legal page.

Post (Website)

A post (website) on the other hand, is different from a page (webpage).

A post is a piece of content either written, images, videos or in any form that is published online.

If you look at it, it is equivalent to a blog.

So since a blog is a discussion or informal website published on a World Wide Web.., it needs a post in order to be displayed on the blog.

Blog Elements 4; NAVIGATION MENU

Blog Elements Navigation

Another part of this article is called…

‘Navigation Menu”.

Have you heard about location, location, location?

You need a map to monitor your direction in order to reach your destination.

In a blog, the navigation menu is like that.

Every blog needs a navigation menu.

Adverts

Because…

It helps readers to seek and find information quickly and easily.

So this is why every blog needs a navigation menu.

In some blog, you can find it at;

  • Blog header
  • Blog sidebar
  • Blog footer

Conclusion

So this is how you’ve come to the conclusion of this article…

“4 Blog Elements that you should never resist”.

The reason why this matters is that…

Your blog can not survive without the 4 blog elements.

So I am encouraging you to review your blog concerning the 4 blog elements in there.
