Publication Blog and Blogs

A Blog is a must-have inclusion for any Publication Website. Blogs are usually maintained by an individual, or by a corporation with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events or other material such as graphics, audio or video. Entries are commonly displayed in reverse chronological order. The Blog, and other related spawned Blogs will provide commentary, opinions and news on proprietary or general related subjects pertinent to the Publication and its online presence. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic, and promotes Website traffic and collaboration. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. The careful flow of related postings and comments should bring significant outside traffic and new readers to your Publication's Website.

Nevertheless, a Publication Blog has the potential to develop a stronger reader relationship combined with reader loyalty due to the conveyed "human" interaction with the Editors, Authors, and the Publication's staff. On the same note, the Blog will build the profile of the collaborators involved, giving them the opportunity to showcase their expertise and writing talent online.

The Publication Blog section may include links to blog directories or other related blogs.
