To Blog or Not To Blog?

If you're involved in network marketing or mlm today and don't have a blog you may as well be driving a "Model T" automobile as opposed to a "hybrid."

"Blog" is an abbreviated version of "weblog," which is a term used to describe websites that maintain an ongoing chronicle of information.

A blog is a frequently updated, personal website featuring diary-type commentary and links to articles on other Web sites.

Blogs range from the personal to the political, and can focus on one narrow subject such as 'network marketing lead generation' or a whole range of subjects.

Many blogs focus on a particular topic, such as mlm, home staging, sports, or mobile technology. Some are more eclectic, presenting links to all types of other sites.

A blog usually has a main content area with articles listed chronologically, newest on top. Often, the articles are organized into categories.

The Blog Content

Content is king when it comes to your blog or web site.

For instance retail sites may feature a catalog of products. University sites might contain information about their campuses, curriculum, and faculty. News sites show the latest news stories.

On a blog, the content consists of articles (also sometimes called "posts" or "entries") that the author(s) (which is YOU) writes. Most blog authors compose their articles in a web-based interface, built into the blogging system itself.

Blog Comments

Most websites don't allow you to post comments, at least not prominently anyway. With blogs people can, and as a matter of fact you want them to!


Posting comments is one of the most exciting features of blogs.

We've all been taught that in network marketing, the most important part of the business is meeting and developing personal relationships with other people. Fortunately for you blogs are perfect for doing just that.
