Should i put a website and a blog at my main domain?

Postby Yes! You Can Sing! » Sat May 16, 2009 9:14 am

Hi there!

I have found out you can make a static website on wordpress, but is it a good idea to have a blog at your main website domain as well?

I am going to use wordpress to make a static front page for my website at yesyoucansing.com, and i was wondering if people have any thoughts on whether it's best to put a blog on a separate page on your main website or have a separate blog?

I hope that question is clear!

Thanks

If you want your homepage to remain the same, there is actually an option within wordpress to set your home page as static. I've done this on http://easywahmwebsites.com - our home page always stays put no matter how many posts we add to the site :)

This is true, having a static frontpage is possible. You can also have a static frontpage with different design and have a wordpress blog as a subdomain.

Isn't it great? :) Glad you're finding your way around the software. How is the site coming along?

Hi
I am working on changing my website content for online marketing as opposed to attract one to one clients... any suggestions for tutorials on homepage content for online marketing,for affiliate learn to sing products and my own book and videos (not launched yet) or just look at other people's websites?

Otherwise wordpress is great! I had a bit of a problem until i figured out the template i chose doesn't have pages built into it.... so i found another one which does and that solved that!!!

Thanks for asking!

Well adding pages to any theme is easy to do! Shouldn't have to change a template! Just add a pages widget. ;)

That's how powerful wordpress is. You can imagine the thousands of plugins that you can use, it can even make your blog run on autopilot including bookmarking pinging and tweeting.

The articles that it contains together with the submission to article directories can be a very powerful tandem.
