Every Author Needs a Blog to Showcase their Books and Themselves

All authors need a blog from which they can write articles, post videos and podcasts, and provide a way to be contacted. The best way to create a blog is to use a tool called WordPress.

WordPress is a content management system as an online, open source tool for creating websites and blogs. It is touted as the most powerful and simple blogging and website system there is. It was created in “non-geek speak” so that anyone can build a site. Countless themes are available to match any kind of business or hobby out there. Their Help documentation is easy to understand and written for the not-so-techies.

We especially like WordPress for its blogging platform capabilities because of the ease of using and maintaining it even for the novice.

A blog allows you to offer content in the form of a blog or article that represents your company’s product or service to keep your clients, vendors, employees and others up to date. WordPress is a great way to brand your company, which is vital to your success.

Every author needs a blog for branding and as a homebase for their author platform.

Platforms such as LinkedIn and Facebook own all of the content you put on them. So you are at constant risk of losing your blogs or articles. If you violate their terms of service, they can delete your content without notice. There goes all of your hard work and efforts. Ouch! However, your WordPress blog remains yours – you own it forever as long as you pay the hosting bill each month or year. That gives you a sense of security that is priceless.

We will help you create your blog or website from conception to final product, including setting up your domain name, WordPress, and email support. You can have us add photographs, artwork, fancy fonts, all kinds of graphics under the sun. We even have a professional copywriter to help you write your content in a manner that will bring you readers and sales.
