The question of which is best, a website or a blog has a different answer today than it might have a few years ago. As the saying goes “the more things change the more they stay the same”. This holds true when discussing the differences between websites and blogs.
There are free online blog formats, yet many of those have limits on what can be done as far as earning income. Online Feedback can destroy your blog with little to no notice. So many people opt to host (have on a personal website) their own blog. The initial set up requires a little work, but after it is very easy to run. This also allows for more creativity, more adaptability, and less worry about the online program deciding they do not like your blog anymore.
These are all free methods, and they’re also the very best methods that you can use. Although they are somewhat time-consuming, these methods will ultimately earn a decent amount of money for you.
Blogs help improve writing and thinking. When we are forced to publicly express ourselves through the written word, it is my opinion that we become better writers.
Be proactive! The most important thing you can is to be proactively engaging your online presence. This has traditionally been done with TV and radio ads which do work. But the nice thing is you can cast a wider net for cheaper online blogs. This can easily be done for free with things like video marketing, SEO, or paid search ads. I’m not saying to flush the traditional methods since we took full advantage of TV and it worked. But these days you gotta be thinking outside the box to make it work. And most importantly, engage and reward your online community who talk about you favorably. Creating a raving fan base is a lot simpler than one typically thinks. Things like video testimonials, online reviews, and social media sharing will make your business shine like no other before.
Don’t think about those days in grammar school. You don’t have to worry about a teacher sitting at the front of the class looking over her glasses at you while you are writing. Forget about turning in your elementary school papers and fearing the big red pen. You are now older and you have all the tools that you need to get started with writing online.
So here is the real deal, fix your spiritual life before you go on a journey to fix any other area of your life. Didn’t Jesus say to first seek the kingdom and everything else shall be added? Where and how did we miss or forget that? Let’s get it right, fix your spirit. Plain and simple. We can beat around the bush another 30 years but in the end there it is again. The problem is in the spirit realm. Get in touch with your maker, make your peace with Him and get back to God Almighty. He has been waiting for you.
