Yesterday morning, I just happened to finish my yoga workout and pressed the stop button on our VCR when I heard a reporter talking about David Beckham’s underwear ad. Well, fortunately my wife wasn’t in the room when I saw this, otherwise, we might not have gotten to the office in time.
I know you may be thinking, “Mr. Technique specializes in websites, not celebrity smut!” Yes, Mr. Technique does specialize in web design, but something about David Beckham pertaining to website development happened to be on the national news this week.
What really caught my attention was hearing the reporter mention that there were several blogs talking about David Beckham’s underwear ad.
Five years ago, a blog would have never made national headlines much less any respected opinion about David Beckham.
Now any individual can start typing away at his/her computer and start making waves nationwide.
What is a blog you might ask?
Well, for those of you who don’t know, a blog is short for a web log. You can start up a blog for free at www.blogger.com and talk about topics in your industry to your clients, customers, and even prospects. You don’t even need me to update your blog. You can do it yourself and start driving traffic to your website from your blog.
Although, Blogger.com is a great blogging tool, I recommend having a WordPress blog on your website. The advantages of having a WordPress blog installed on your site as opposed to just having an account with Blogger.com are:
- You can customize it to the look of your website
- It can be your website with your own domain name
- There are way more design templates to choose from
- You can add multiple editors to the blog with each editor having their own account
- You never have to worry about your account being cancelled
Of course, I can help you set up a WordPress blog. Once I set up the blog, it’s so easy to update the content yourself. No website knowledge is required to keep your blog updated. It really is that simple.

Next week, we’ll be back with more helpful advice, but in the meantime, please pass this information on to your friends, family, co-workers, or even your boss.
