Making It Legit

If you publish a blog, whether it’s a solo project or a group gig, you qualify for an International Standard Serial Number (ISSN). That’s right—you are a legitimate publication like any magazine or newspaper according to the National Serials Data Program, Library of Congress:

“In the case of electronic serials—especially those available online, such as on the Internet—the most significant criterion is that the publication must be divided into parts or issues which carry unique, numerical designations by which the individual issues may be identified, checked in, etc. Electronic serials that are issued as individual articles meet this criterion as long as the articles carry a unique designation.” [1]
