As more and more people are geting involved in the blogging world the benefits are becoming more obvious.
What is a blog? “A blog is a web page made up of usually short, frequently updated posts that are arranged chronologically—like a what’s new page or a journal.”
Blogs fall into two general categories:
Personal Blogs: a combination of a personal diary, opinion posts and research links.
Business Blogs: a corporate tool for communicating with customers or employees to share knowledge and expertise.
Blogs are an excellent method to share a company’s expertise, build additional web traffic, and connect with potential customers..
