So you want to blog?
It can be a big jump to take the plunge and start blogging. In fact if you are just starting out it can be more of a case of ‘I don’t know what I don’t know’ which can be a big barrier.
What is the difference between a blog and a website?
Simply put – a blog is your news feed, it has new and regular content which can be easily shared. A web page is more static – sort of like your business card online.
Search engines like Google love new content – which means sites with blogs will rank higher than sites without.
Once set up blogging is remarkably easy and if you have the right platform your blog can morph into something more – like your company website over which you have complete control. No more requesting changes from IT or the company managing your site. You can make the changes easily and simply.
What about the cost?
Between $50 to $700 per year depending on how fancy you would like your site to be. Honestly speaking when you start out you don’t have to spend a cent.
