blossary

A blossary is a blog written in the form of a list of terms and definitions related to a specific topic. It's a new way to create and organize content by simply defining a list of terms to explain various aspects of a story or subject. The terms collectively make up the blog content.

Blossaries are more versatile compared to conventional blogs as they can be created more easily without having to follow specific plots or timelines. Blossaries can also be written collaboratively by several people. Individual terms within a blossary can be recombined to form new blossaries or supplemented with images to more effectively describe each concept. Since blossaries consist of specific terms, they can be tagged accurately for better SEO.

The term blossary is a portmanteau combining the first part of 'blog' with the second part of 'glossary'. TermWiki's My Glossary is a good blossary example as it's made up with numerous blossaries created by individual contributors.
