electronic publishing

The displaying, presenting or "posting" of some type of written, auditory, or visual media onto the World Wide Web. To be viewed either entirely or in parts by all users or just certain users.

A new age of "publishing" without paper, mainly using Web sites, blogs, and apps. Most newspapers and magazines now "publish" in an electronic form on the Web. Access is usually "free" or through a free membership, but some sites do charge a subscription price.

The widely held thought is that anytime you put up a Web page of your own, even if it is a simple home page for your personal reasons, you are actually "publishing" electronic content. Publishing this way is a lot easier than "print" publishing your content and it's practically free or very low cost.
