Web Sites and Ezine Design and Hosting
Blogging is the activity of creating and updating a blog, as well as moderating comments and possibly responding to comments.
The Blog owner can enable or disable the ability to accept comments. Normally comments are encouraged because this provides for feedback and two-way communication. Keep in mind that the average person may feel somewhat inhibited from commenting on a blog post. For this reason, obtaining a critical mass of blog comments can be challenging.
The challenge of managing feeds has led to applications called a blog readers and caused software makers to add blog reader functionality to other software.
An advantage of Feed subscription is that Email is not required and spam filters are not involved. Therefore it's more likely the notice will be received by the subscriber. A disadvantage is that many people do not check their feeds on a regular basis.

WebValence supports various ways of adding a blog to a website:
We cover these options in more detail in the next three sections.
With the blog as part of your web site, your blog will typically be accessed via an address such as: http://yourwebsite.com/blog/
An advantage of this approach is that the blog will generally look more like a blog and readers may easily recognize it as such. Another possible advantage is that more links to your main site from other sites may help your rankings in the search engines.
It is possible to create and maintain a web site with Blog software. If you plan to feature a blog on your site and if you like the themes that Blog software provides,this may provide a quick and economical way to obtain a web site.
However, if yours is a high-traffic site, or if you want the fastest possible response, you should avoid WordPress. Sites built with Wordpress are more complex than a comparable static website, and may add a noticeable delay to your site delivery. The amount of delay will depend upon the themes, plugins, and graphical content that you decide to present.
WebValence support staff can help you get started by designing a custom template for you, or you can select from one of the many available WordPress templates.
