Archive for the category “Blogging” vs comparison…which is the best fit for your needs?

If you’re considering using WordPress for your blog and/or website, you may or may not already realize that WordPress offers two separate and different options for your consideration:
1) – WordPress hosted blogging platform
2) – WordPress self-hosted blogging/website platform

If this seems confusing to you, you’re not alone! Even the WordPress logo is identical, except for the color ( is black, is blue). So which one should you choose? Well, that depends on your technical skills, your budget, what you want it to do for you and your business, and a few other criteria that only you can answer.

Here is some quick useful info (2 articles and 1 video) from three separate WordPress experts to help you make a more informed decision on which WordPress is right for you. Feel free to ask any questions you might have in the comment box below.

How Can I Help You Be More Successful in Your Marketing?

I help busy entrepreneurs set up step-by-step marketing systems.

What Marketing Improvement Would Be Worth $30 and One Hour to Have Completed?

Small companies tend to have more limited budgets. To help with that, I like to break down larger systems into their smaller components. This provides the opportunity for smaller companies to assemble their own customized marketing system in small steps, rather than having to risk a huge initial investment in time and money.

I’m putting together some new 60-minute online marketing workshops, so I’m looking to offer you the most help and value I can for an affordable price. I find that I’m able to offer even more value by leveraging my time in an online group setting.

In this workshop, I will actually walk you through a process so that, by the end of the hour, you will actually HAVE SOMETHING DONE AND IN PLACE. Learning new information is fun, but busy entrepreneurs sometimes just need to get things done, rather than just spending an hour and $30 learning about it, just to have to spend more time actually figuring out how to put your new knowledge into action. 😉

Which of these (choose as many as you like or add your own ‘Other’) do you need right now and would be worth $20-$30 to get done in a 60-minute online group workshop setting?

What is the PURPOSE / GOAL of your blog?

What will your blog message be?

What will your blog message be?

Blogging is becoming more and more popular everyday and there are many reasons WHY people blog. While blogs can be written about any topic, the reasons WHY the blogger started the blog usually helps guide the blog’s most effective style and desired audience.

Should you join the blogosphere? Before you start a blog (or as you continue developing your existing blog} take a moment to consider the reason WHY you want to be a blogger…ask yourself:

  • What are my short- and long-term goals for my blog?
  • Is my blog personal or business/professional?
  • Do I want to make money, inform, share, have fun, other?
  • What would be my ultimate desired end result from my blogging investment in time, focus, and energy?
  • Who would my ideal audience be? Who do I want to reach?

Make sure the reason why you want to blog matches your blog goals, or you won’t be able to keep churning out quality content and your blog will most likely fail. Be aware of your own personal WHY and align your goals with this, and you could have a very popular and successful blog that fulfills you personally and achieves your higher purpose.

I’m interested in hearing why YOU are interested in blogging.
Please take a moment to join your fellow bloggers in the poll below.

  2. ADD YOUR OWN reason in the OTHER field at the bottom.

Wishing you success and fulfillment in your blogging endeavors! 😀

WordPress SEO Tip for Beginners – How to Optimize Your Blog Posts

Make Internal Linking a Habit!

For better SEO and longer visitor stays, link to your own content. Once you have blogged for a while, you’ll have enough content to be able to send new readers to check out your older relevant posts.

WordPress allows you to search for your old posts and link to them right inside the post editor

Rename the WordPress Blog ‘Uncategorized’ Category

WordPress Tip:
Rename the ‘Uncategorized’ category on your WordPress blogs and sites for a more professional look.

I chose one of the most broad categories I could think of for my particular blog…’Social Media’. So now when visitors see my posts, even if I forgot to ‘categorize’ that particular post, the visitor likely won’t notice the difference AND will still be searchable for that keyword tag/category.
