2 Part Series: Blog vs Website... Blogs


Since I have both Blogs and Websites, I thought I would share what I have found to be some of the advantages and disadvantages of both. I will provide some links at the end for further reference.


Advantages:

~~ Dynamic... You can keep all your information up to date on a daily basis.

~~ Newest First... All new information is shown at the top of the page.

~~ Archives... All your previous pages are listed here for easy access.

~~ Links... Linking to other Blogs in the same genre helps drive traffic to your site.

~~ Blog Services... Using various types of feed services will give exposure to your Blog.

~~ Community... You can have conversations and feedback from your readers using comments.

~~ Sidebar... Add any link, service you provide or advertisements.

~~ RSS... It is easy for your readers to keep current with your headlines through RSS feeds.

~~ SEO... Search engines thrive on current information, the more often you publish the better.


Disadvantages:

~~ Selling Products... It is difficult to sell your own products without being labeled a Splog (spam blog).

~~ Outside Advertising... More often than not you need to depend on other advertisers for revenue.

~~ Old Posts... Readers rarely go past the first page or the newest post, they must be enticed to go further.

~~ New Visitors... You need a constant influx of new visitors to be profitable with any advertising you use.

~~ Familiarity... Some people only stop by once a week or longer once they know how you present your information.

~~ Templates... Although there are a lot of templates to choose from, changing after you are established may be difficult.


These are by no means the only possibilities, so feel free to add your thoughts.
