Blogs can run your entire website



Blogs can run your entire website

For some people, it means keeping an online journal. For others, blogging is about creating a community of people who can contribute to a growing discussion on a specific topic. For me, however, blogging is about building and running a complete website. This is because blogging can be used as a complete content management system for almost any website.

There are several reasons why you should consider using blog pages to run your entire website. These include:

  •  You can make changes to the content of your website without the need for specialized software
  •  You can make changes to your content from anywhere you can access the web; it doesn't need to be on your PC.
  •  You can make changes to content quickly, faster than with software.
  •  You can make changes to the content without incurring costs, unlike what happens with a web design agency.
  •  You can use blogs to create content with colleagues, working as a team, something that is more difficult and more expensive with the software.

All of these benefits can be obtained for free by using Blogger.com to run your pages. To use Blogger.com as your content management system, please do the following:

1. Create a web page template for your entire site.
2. Include Blogger.com 'tags' for each blog post within your template. The key tags you will need are: <$ BlogItemTitle $> and <$ BlogItemBody $>. These tags will insert the title and text of each item you enter on your blog.
3. Configure each page of your website as a separate blog using the "advanced" settings.
4. For each blog, use your template code as a template on Blogger.com.
5. Post only one post on each blog, which is the main content of your page. 
6. Publish your blog! That's!

In the future, you will be able to change the content or add content to it, simply by going to Blogger.com, choosing the appropriate blog (or page on your website), and then editing the post element.

People are beginning to realize the potential of blogging content management. You no longer have to view blogging in terms of a single page added to your website. Instead, you can view blogging as the way you run your website.
