Reasons To Get Your Own Blog
Are you trying to decide whether to get your own blog or setup a website? You may have noticed that blogs have become very prevalent and they are even becoming more popular than websites. This is because a blog is a great way for a person to get their opinions, ideas or even business online without a lot of different hassles.
The reasons why you should get your own blog rather than create a website are many and here just a few.
> A Blog is easy to use
As blogs are simple and easy to use you will not need to be a computer geek to understand how to create your own blog. A blog is quick to access and any changes that may have to be done can be done easily. You can see why blogs have been so popular when you consider how hard it is to access a website and change all those confusing HTML’s!
> Easy to make changes
It is easy to make changes and post on your own blog quickly without a lot of the hassles that a website may give you. It is possible to make changes on your blog in a few seconds compared to the hours that it can take to update a website. If you are updating your blog on a daily basis, then this is a great reason to use a blog rather than a website.
> Quick delivery of information
Whatever you post on your blog can be delivered quickly compared to the hours it would take using a website. Just by following all the directions when you are updating your blog you will have the information out to your readers in no time because the search engines pick up the new information quickly. It usually takes much longer for the search engines to update your new information if you use a website.
> Easy to organize the information
There is far less headache involved in the development stages when you add new information to your own blog. It does not have to be perfect as the software will organize a lot of it for you. When using a website you have to organize all the information yourself and anyone who has developed a website knows that this can be very confusing and time consuming.
> Ease of communication with your readers
A blog provides you with the option of allowing your readers to post any comments or questions on your blog. Blog comments are an important way to stay in contact with your friends, business clients or even followers. You will not have this option with a website.
> Free to low cost
Generally blogs are free to the user so the main cost to you will be your time. Also blogs are a great way for a company to save on advertising costs as they can advertise for free, but with a website they do not have this option.
> In favor with the search engines
All search engines love blogs. The web crawlers will find the new posts very quickly because they are so keyword rich. However the web crawlers take longer when it comes to a website.
The above, which are just a few reasons why blogs are becoming more popular than websites, will hopefully help you decide whether getting your own blog is the answer for you.
