Reasons To Use A Blog:
Blogs have become very popular, and they becoming even more popular than a formal website. A blog is a great way for a person to get their ideas, opinion or even business online without a lot of hassle. There are many reasons why a person would choose to blog over creating a website.
1. Easy to use
Blogs are simple and easy to use. You will not need to be a computer geek to understand how to create a blog. They can be accessed quickly and any changes can be made really easily. If you compare this to how hard it is to access a website and changing all that confusing HTML, you can see why blogs have been so popular.
You are able to change your blog quickly without the hassle a website may give you. You can make your changes in your blogs in seconds compared to the hours that it can take to update your website. When you are updating on a daily basis, this is a great reason to use a blog versus a website.
The information you post on a blog can be delivered quickly compared to the hours it would take using a website. Once you get the hang of it you can update your blog and have the information out to your readers in no time because the search engines pick up the new information quickly. With a website it can take hours or even days for the search engines to update your new information.
When you add new information to your blog there is less headache involved in the development stages. When you are organizing your site, it does not have to be perfect as the software will come behind you and organize it for you. With a website you have to organize all the different information yourself and anyone who has developed a website knows this can be very confusing and time consuming.
It is easy for your reader to post any comments or questions on your blog. These comments are an important way to stay in contact with your business clients, friends, or even followers. With a website you will not have this option.
Most generally blogs are free to the user so the most cost to you is your time. Blogs are a great way for a company to save on advertising costs because on a blog they can advertise for free. Again with a website they do not usually have this option.
7. Search Engines
Search engines love blogs. They are so keyword rich that the web crawlers will attach themselves right away. With a website it takes time to create keywords that search engines will love.
These are just a few reasons why blogs have become so popular over websites. For further information blogs and to grab some really valuable blogging tools, go to the Resources section.
