A blogging platform is a type of content management system (CMS) that allows users to author blogs and other types of content. Blogging platforms are different than traditional CMS because they focus solely on publishing blog posts, meaning they do not allow users to manage the navigation structure or content of an entire website. Examples of blogging platforms include WordPress, Medium, Joomla, Drupal, Tumbler and several others.
Blogging platforms are meant to be easy to use and offer advanced functionality. Blogging platforms allow users with no technical knowledge to easily set up their own blog or website. Additional topics related to blogging platforms may include content management systems, email marketing, ecommerce, social media integration, and analytics features.
