Blogging is a term that means different things to different people. To some people it means keeping an online journal. To others blogging is about creating a community of people who can contribute to a growing discussion on a specific topic. To me, however, blogging is about creating and running an entire web site. That's because blogging can actually be used as a complete content management system for almost any web site.
There are several reasons why you should consider using blog pages to run your entire web site. These include:
* You can make changes to your web site content without the need for specialist software
* You can make changes to your content from anywhere you can access the web; you don't need to be at your PC.
* You can make changes to content quickly - more quickly than with software.
* You can make changes to content without incurring cost - unlike using a web design agency.
* You can use blogs to create content with colleagues, working as a team - something that's more difficult and more costly with software.
All of these benefits can be obtained free of charge using Blogger.com to run your pages. To use Blogger.com as a content management system, take the following steps:
1. Create a web page template for your entire site.
2. Include Blogger.com 'tags' for each blog entry within your template. The key tags you will need are: and . These tags will insert the title and the text for each item you enter into your blog.
3. Set up each page of your web site as a separate blog using the 'advanced' settings.
4. For each blog, use your template code as the template within Blogger.com
5. Post a single entry into each blog, which is the main content for your page.
6. Publish your blog! That's it!
In the future, you will be able to change the content or add to it, simply by logging onto Blogger.com, choosing the appropriate blog (or page of your web site) and then editing the post item.
People are beginning to realize the potential for content management using blogs. You no longer have to see blogs in terms of a single page that is added to your web site. Instead, you can view blogging as the way you run your web site.
