Why are library blogs a good idea?

geralt / PixabayI frequently recommend blogs to people running non-profits, especially libraries. This post from Ned Potter talks about why this is a good idea:

  • Blogging platforms come mobile-ready — this is mostly true, but only if you pick the right theme and don’t add plug-ins or a lot of extras that aren’t mobile-friendly
  • Google loves blogs — blog posts gets indexed by search engines fast
  • Blogs are easy to use — there is a small learning curve, but they’re mostly easy to use
  • Blogs are free — which is technically correct, but not really

Blogs are an easy way to build a website, or to add to an existing website. And they are relatively inexpensive.
