12 Reasons Why You Need A Blog
(Page 1 of 5 )
"Why Should I Blog? I Simply Don't Get It" This post on a popular discussion forum set me thinking - and I came up with 12 reasons you should blog.
Read them and get started on your blog. Or better still, go get your blog up and running and THEN come back and read this :)
#1 - You Do Not Need To Know HTML
One of the biggest hurdles many hopeful website creators face is they don't know to design a webpage. Blogs overcome this - all you do is type into a box, and the blog software automatically converts it into a webpage and publishes it on the World Wide Web for anyone to see.
#2 - You Are 'Forced' To Keep Your Content Fresh
Blogs are essentially online diaries. It doesn't make sense to write in your diary every month or two. Similarly, running a blog itself 'forces' you to update it often. And refreshing your blog often makes it more useful to readers and consumers - and by extension, to search engines who are in the business of presenting *their* clients with valuable resources.
#3 - Your Blog Is AUTOMATICALLY Optimized For Search Engines
Search engines love fresh content. But that's not the only way blogs are powerful tools to rank high. Indeed, most blogs are structured to offer a high degree of search engine optimization.
