Question about writing articles

Postby valerielynn » Thu Aug 09, 2007 8:20 pm

Hello,

Someone told me that writing articles and having a blog is a good way to promote your business and drive traffic to your site. I was just wandering if thats really true and if it is then where would I go online to write articles and start a blog?

Valerie, it's very true that a blog can be a great way to promote your website. If you have your site professionally hosted, then you should be able to set up a wordpress blog from your cPanel.

As for writing articles, one of the best sites to get exposure is Ezine Articles. There is a link to them in my page on my main site as well as links to a lot of the articles I have already submitted there.

Why not follow one of the links and see how it looks for yourself. If you think that you'd like to submit some for yourself, it's free to sign-up with them.

If you need any help there, just ask! :D
Terry

Valerie,

If you do a search on Google for "article directories" it will return many great places. Ezine directory is the very best like Terry already said. If you are serious about setting up a blog, then self hosted Word press is the go. Nothing else comes even close!

To do this, you need to have cpanel with integrated "fantastico" preferably. By clicking on the "fantastico" icon within cpanel it will allow you to set up a wordpress blog with the click of a mouse (or two :D ) Once your basic Wordpress template is installed you will then be able to search for a more suitable template from
http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Themes/Theme_List

The choices are virtually endless, but using Wordpress as a blog will favor you with the search engines. Another bonus with Wordpress is the compatibility with plugins and widgets.
If you haven't got hosting yet, then my top choice is Hostgator. You can get a baby croc package for under $10/month.

Hope this helps

Monika

Hi there Valerie,

I've seen you at many forums today. Welcome to this one. :D

Just wanted to add here that "wordpress" has a lot of tutorials.

(If you wanted to go with "wordpress")

You will find them here:
http://www.wordpresstutorials.com/
http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_Lessons

There are also more blog sites like www.blogger.com
Blogger.com is free to use. You will find more blog sites by doing a search on

Also for writing articles, there are tons and tons of article directories you can submit articles to.

Give a yell if you have any questions.
Glad you found The Honest Way forum. :D
Tammy
