Blogs vs Traditional Websites

In this blog I will describe in detail how to start blogging and the advantages of blogging. I know that this topic is elaborated in other, mostly foreign, blogs. However, I feel the need to write them in my own way.

The advantages of a blog over a traditional website are:

1) Blogging is Really Easy & Can be Set Up Quickly

All you have to do in order to start blogging is to set up an account in one free blogging service. For the very start you should decide your blog’s name. Then,the blogging software takes care of all of the scary stuff, like writing HTML and publishing your pages to the web. All you need to do is type your content.

2) Blogs are Search Engine Friendly

For the most part, blogs are pretty search engine friendly. What this means is that you won’t have to spend a lot of time worrying about SEO (Search Engine Optimization), because most blog software takes care of SEO basics for you.

Blogs automatically link all of your posts and pages together, which helps search engine spiders to find, crawl, and index your whole site. Blogs also use your relevant keywords in the Titles, Meta Tags, and URLs of every page, which also helps pages to rank higher in the search engines.

3) Blogs are Extremely Organized

One of the toughest thing about maintaining a traditional website is keeping pages organized. Blogs automatically organize your content by date, category, tags, and even include a built in search. This makes it much easier for people to navigate your blog and find what they are looking for.
4) A Blog is a Magnet for Readers

If you’re writing about something you are passionate about, there are bound to be others who are also passionate about that topic too. Hopefully, your blog will attract those readers / visitors, and if you write regularly, those readers will keep coming back for more.

5) A Blog is an Instant Online Community

Blogs have built in commenting systems, which allow your readers to comment and have discussions about various topics.

This promotes readership, and also generates unique relevant content.
