One of the more recent additions to methods of communicating on the Internet is the weblog, or blog. If you are not familiar with blogging, it's a pretty simple concept. You have the ability to post promotions, articles, news releases, public notices, and such without involving a website designer. Once a post has been made, you have the ability to allow your visitors to make comments, or disable that feature.
As with forums and chatrooms, if monitored, a blog can be a tremendous addition to your website. If, however, you or one of your people cannot monitor your blog, it may not be a good idea to add one to your site, or at the very least, disabling the ability to leave comments would be prudent. There is just something about a public soapbox that draws visitors with a need to cause trouble. If you let this sort of behavior exist on your website, it can hurt your image with quality visitors.
Depending on your needs, blogs can be simple or very intricate... but with added features and custom design comes additional expense. One of the Advantage Website Designs Dallas offerings is custom blog template design, which allows you to stand out from the rest of the millions of bloggers using a handful of standard templates, giving your blog a family look with your main website.
Please take the time to explore other blogs on the Internet before making the decision to add one to your website.
