Found this very long, but insightful piece on Blog systems compared, and using blog tools to manage a starter website. The key is being able to put you in control of your site- not some geek.
Bop on over to this informative article- it’s long, but useful.
Probably thanks to MySpaceâ€™s confused contribution to the world, these days even â€œnormalâ€ people have heard of blogging. Blogging allows amateurs to freely publish information and manage sophisticated online, two-way communication with readers around the world.But, blogging isnâ€™t just for geeks and aspiring musicians anymore. Businesses have jumped on the bandwagon and use blogging as a fluid way to gauge and manage customer sentiment.
Blogs also tend to be a compliment – and in some cases a complete replacement – to traditional online customer support.
So how can blogging help your business?
Use A Blog For Your First Website

Blogs are making it easier for non-technical people to get involved.
Remember, once your site is built in a database, it can be transported into other more sophisticated site management tools easily- a hard coded site cannot. You also have the opportunity to deliver your content on cell phones- or change the look of your site with the push of a button- but best of all, you can get to the top of search if you’ve taken our Websitetology seminar.
