Blog Sites

Welcome to my Come Blog With Me Page!

I teach people how to set up blogs at a City College in New York! Let me help you!

Everyone’s talking about Blogging! What is a blog and can you have one?

A blog is a great way to express yourself and it’s also a smart marketing tool! Below I have examples of Blogs for you to look at. Blog stands for Weblog. It’s like a journal – but not the one you used to keep under lock and key!!! Today’s Blogs are meant to share and share alike! You can have great fun adding multi-media to your blog, promoting your product or services and getting your voice out there!

Blogs have been shown to be very effective with Search Engines. Part of the reason is that blogs were intented to be updated daily or at least weekly. Search Engines like sites that are not static and have new content. Further, there are ways to integrate other Social Networking site to help market your blog!

There are a few ways to set up your blog:

1. Set up your own account and have your blog hosted on blogger.com or wordpress.com or
2. Host your own blog.

This is the easiest way to get started. To create your own content-managed Web site, integrate a blog with your current Web site or just host your own blog (which gives you freedom of design, more “plug-ins” many other advantages) you also need a domain name and a hosting account.

The rewards of having your own blog are many! You can add videos – just like the ones you see on u-tube! You can add pictures, polls and conduct surveys and so much more! Every blog is as unique as you are!
