Blogs have become ever more popular recently as a marketing tool. Why? For one major reason. Search engines like Google and Yahoo spider the blogs more often than other web sites (spidering means that they visit them more often to see if there are any changes or new pages). Blogs have two attributes that attract this increased spidering: 1. a continuous stream of new content provided by the main blogger as well as by those who comment on the blog, and 2. lots of links, both inbound and outbound, suggesting a more popular web site.
Why should you blog? Here are three major reasons:
1. A blog establishes your expertise much in the same way as writing books, but in this case, a blog establishes your expertise on the web.
2. A blog helps to get you more attention on the web, thus exposing you, your ideas, and your book to more people.
3. A popular blog with lots of links to your web site (or as an integral part of your web site) helps to increase the rating for your web site.

Have you ever wanted to write a book, fiction or non-fiction, but you just couldn’t get it started, or didn’t have the time, or couldn’t think of a plot, or had writer’s block, or didn’t think you had anything important to say, or didn’t think you had the writing talent, or had something else that was stopping you?

Well, I’ve just discovered a web site that is specially designed to help you write your book faster than you ever thought possible. In fact, there’s information here that will lead you to write your book in 14 days.
Now, I know that seems hard to believe, but when Mark Victor Hansen (co-author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul books) saw the information, he not only said it was some of the best stuff he’d ever used, he even asked the owner of the website, Steve Manning, to speak at his next seminar! And Mark is using this information to crank out still more books!
