This is a great debate that started for me well before we started MyTypes.com blogging platform. If you don’t have a business, do you still need a website? Does a website address have to make it a website there? What is a website, and how is that different than a blog? Is a blog just a journal or can a blog website actually replace your website?
A blog is no longer just a journal, and a blog website is what you want. We recommend that you get a WordPress blog website on any URL that you choose. Well, and if you don’t need to waste your money on a URL, for non business reasons, don’t waste it. Get the blog website on MyTypes.com/”your name here” or on “yourname”.wordpress.com or “yourname”.blogspot.com. Why am I recommending our competitors here? Because they are the best, options and we are really here trying to help you.
So every website in the future should have a blogging system built in it, or every blog should have all the features a website should have. Every website should have the ability to build community and make the content easy to upload and add. Every business website, needs to do that. And, every business blog and blogging platform should be customizable to your brand.
Most importantly, every blog and website should be able to promote your content to your audience. And the content either business or not, for a non-profit cause, should be search engine optimized (SEO). Tomorrow’s topic will be Design, the most important aspect of your blog or website, where beauty meets ease of use.
**I am coming back to edit and re-read this post as I do this time to time with our blogs. I wanted to add for people’s perspectives, that blogs will continue to be better for promoting your business as they will rank higher in the search engines. This shift 7 months after the original post of this blog, I think blogs are starting to replace people’s websites, especially the wordpress blogging platform. Also now that we are providing SEO services to our clients such as CRM and CRM Software, silver jewelry, and generally doing more SEO, we believe that all businesses should have blogs.
