What’s a Weblog or Blog
A blog is basically an online diary, this means that you can keep a daily journal or your business or your life and let people see it and read it – and comment too.
Blogs are a great way of contacting your customers on a different level – allow them to reply – give comments and let you know what they think. If you have a knowledge that others would find value – then write about it. Its like having your own newspaper column!
The best things is its great for attracting attention from search engines and customers.
Its quick and its simple BUT it does take a commitment to write in it daily, weekly or monthly – or whatever length or period you determine.
To set up a blog your server must have PHP and MySQL, see hosting for more details.
Why am I talking about WordPress – basically WordPress started out many years ago as a quick and simple way for users to get a blog online. However it was so well done and so well maintained that it has grown and grown and now WordPress is a blog, a website, an ecommerce website, a membership website, an event website.. and so so much more!
The software itself is free I do charge to set up the site, create and install your own template (whilst you can purchase templates I rarely do this as I would prefer you had exactly what you wanted vs someone else’s – plus this way your website looks like your website and no one else’s!) I can also help populate, run the site and of course I will always be on hand to help!
WordPress has moved on a long way and so whilst its still the number 1 choice for a blog its also so much more!! Click here to read all about WordPress and what it can possibly do for you.
