Everything You Need to Create an Exceptional Blog Website Right From the Start...
Blog Website Designs
Many people think that a web log (or blog) is something just for
writers and that a blog cannot serve the same purpose as a website.
They couldn't be more wrong. With technology becoming more prevalent
in the business world and the increased popularity of social media
in the business world, having a blog is an easy way to get more
links and targeted traffic to your business.
Blogs captivate and entice people to get them to keep coming back. So often businesses create websites that remain static and devout of fresh content. This not only puts off customers but the search engines as well. Making sure you have a blog with updated content is a great way to keep your customers engaged and prefer to choose your business as opposed to other businesses that offer the same services.
A professionally made blog can look like a website as well. Serving all the needs of a small business while maintaining its readers and the search engine ranking alike. Even just a few posts a month will keep your website alive and fresh, dominating your competitors with dusty old websites that no one looks at. On top of that, all blogs by First Digital are incredibly easy to edit, meaning anyone in your organization can easily have their own account set up so they can post as freely as you wish.

In no time at all, here's what you can have:
- Full Standards Compliance
Great effort has been made to ensure that every bit of WordPress generated code is in full compliance with the standards of the W3C. This is important not only for interoperability with today's browser but also for forward compatibility with the tools of the next generation. Your website is a beautiful thing, and you should demand nothing less.
- No Rebuilding
Changes made to the blog templates or entries are reflected immediately on your site, with no need for regenerating static pages.
- WordPress Pages
Pages allow you to manage non-blog content easily, so for example you could have a static "About" page that you manage through WordPress. For an idea of how powerful this is, your entire website could be run off WordPress alone.
- WordPress Links
Links allow you to create, maintain, and update any number of blogrolls through your administration interface. This is much faster than calling an external blogroll manager.
- WordPress Themes
WordPress comes with a full theme system which makes designing everything from the simplest blog to the most complicated webzine a piece of cake, and you can even have multiple themes with totally different looks that you switch with a single click. Have a new design every day.
- Cross-Blog Communication
WordPress fully supports both the Trackback and Pingback standards.
Visitors to your site can leave comments on individual entries, and through Trackback or Pingback can even comment on their own site. You can enable or disable comments on a per-post basis.
- Spam Protection
Out of the box WordPress comes with very robust tools such as an integrated blacklist and open proxy checker to manage and eliminate comment spam on your blog, and there is also a rich array of plugins that can take this functionality a step further.
- Full User Registration
WordPress has a built-in user registration system that (if you choose) can allow people to register and maintain profiles and leave authenticated comments on your blog. You can optionally close comments for non-registered users. There are also plugins that hide posts from lower level users.
- Password Protected Posts
You can give passwords to individual posts to hide them from the public. You can also have private posts which are viewable only by their author.
- Easy Installation and
Installing WordPress and upgrading from previous versions and other software is a piece of cake. Try it and you'll wonder why all web software isn't this easy.
- Easy Importing
WordPress currently has importers for Movable Type, Textpattern, Greymatter, Blogger, and b2. Work on importers for Nucleus and pMachine are also under way.
- XML-RPC Interface
WordPress currently supports an extended version of the Blogger API, MetaWeblog API, and finally the MovableType API. You can even use clients designed for other platforms like Zempt.
You can have types of users that can only post drafts, not publish to the front page.
- Typographical Niceties
WordPress uses the Texturize engine to intelligently convert plain ASCII into typographically correct XHTML entities. This includes quotes, apostrophes, ellipses, em and en dashes, multiplication symbols, and ampersands.
- Intelligent Text Formatting
If you've dealt with systems that convert new lines to line breaks before you know why they have a bad name: if you have any sort of HTML they butcher it by putting tags after every new line indiscriminately, breaking your formatting and validation. The WordPress function for this is to intelligently avoids places where you already have breaks and block-level HTML tags, so you can leave it on without worrying about it breaking your code.
- Multiple Authors
WordPress' highly advanced user system allows up to 10 levels of users, with different levels having different (and configurable) privileges with regard to publishing, editing, options, and other users.
Cross-browser bookmarklets make it easy to publish to your blog or add links to your blogroll with a minimum of effort.
- Ping Away
WordPress supports pinging Ping-O-Matic, which means maximum exposure for your blog to search engines.
There's much more, but these are just the highlights.
Why Have a Blog?
Why should you have a blog? What's the difference between a blog and a website? Well, a blog is a website. It stands for weblog, and it's focus is on regular updates and new information as opposed to a static website that sits around and doesn't do much.
The main advantage of a blog over a standard website is that the fresh content not only encourages readers to come back and visit, but it is also loved by search engines such as Google. Now the advantages of this are massive. If you rank well in Google, then people will see your blog, thus promoting either your business or providing you with a valuable advertising space on which to capitalize.
Another major advantage of using a blog as opposed to a standard website is that it is a lot easier for non-technical users to have an input. No special software or knowledge is needed to write a blog post and you can set any number of user accounts up. Publishing a blog post is as easy as changing your status on Facebook!
