About a year ago, I asked my friends in the blogosphere their opinions on keeping a website and a blog. I collected and weighed the information so generously shared with me by those with more experience in online networking.
I had started up this blog two years previously but I posted less than once per week. In two years I had only a little over 100 posts and at the same time I was spending hours updating my website every few weeks. I had slowly expanded my circle of blog friends and noticed how great their blogs were. They had nearly everything on their blogs that I had on my website and blog combined and many of them didn't have websites. I decided to try the way that had been working so well for so many.
I know from attendance at conferences, agents and editors will recommend keeping a website and a blog, but I'm going to stick with just the blog. I get ten times the visits and page views I ever got on my website and hopefully it will keep increasing. Concentrating on my blog was the right choice for me.
How many of you maintain websites and blogs? Do any of you own more than one blog? Is your blog the main focus of your online promotion?
