There are websites and there are blogs. The way to get the best of both is the blogsite. Because I prefer to use Wordpress software, I also call the blogsites I make, Wordpress Websites.

Blogsites are Great for Social Media

The blogsites or Wordpress Websites are not for people who just want an electronic brochure to sit on the web. They are for people, companies, and organisations that have realised that they need to keep a stream of conversation flowing with their customer base, followers, friends, or marketplace. They are great for social media interaction.

Because of the blog-element, blogsites are a fast and powerful way to get your message across on an ongoing and immediate basis.

Is Your Website Working for You?

Building a website in 2011 is nothing like it used to be. Today, the majority of visitors to your site will come from search engines. The top three - Google, Yahoo, and MSN  (Bing) refer more than 90% of all search engine traffic.

The power on the Internet now lies with the searchers - the people who type the words into the search engines like Google. Do you know what words to include in your articles and/or copy so that your audience/market can find you?

SA Writers College, launched in 2005, has added my course Writing for the Web to its comprehensive 2012 line up.

Students for Corporate Sector

At present I have about 50/60 students from across the world, many from the corporate communications sector in South Africa. It seems like the corporates have realised that the people who deal with their internet and intranet need to be able to write for the web.

Some of my students are small busienss owners who realise that in order to become competitive in this new market they need to be able to write blogs and Google ads and understand how Facebook and Twitter work.
