Time to Blog?
It's time to consider a blog for your website.
This new book by Jakub Sanecki is a "must have" for anyone who wishes to use Artisteer and needs a guide to help them get the most out of it. It's available on amazon.ca and amazon.com for a very reasonable price.
I received an advance copy of the eBook and a PDF version, and want to share my thoughts with you in this and a few subsequent blogs.
Overview. This is a comprehensive guide that uses first basic, and then more advanced examples to introduce one to the workflow to use with, and the template types that can be created by, Artisteer 4.0 and up.
From my own experience, there have always been some "gray areas" in the capabilities and limitations of Artisteer. With this guide, those areas have been resolved and some more complex uses have been pointed out.
My hope is that, as Artisteer upgrades come forth, this guide will keep pace with the most current version.
More to come...
I've been using Artisteer - a rather capable website template generator for about five years.
It is relatively intuitive, and helps one to work through the process of creating a "theme" in fairly short order.
My clients have appreciated the customized designs that I have used Artisteer to create, and my time and effort (plus their costs) are thus minimized.
Until recently, there hasn't been any comprehensive documentation to use to "take it to the next level."
That has changed, as my next blog in this area will explain.
In order to engage folks sufficiently to have them return to your blog and/or website, it is necessary to achieve some momentum and then maintain it. I.e. Pique their interest, and be regular or somewhat predictable in adding to your blog and/or website.
It's not necessarily hard nor easy to capture surfers' interest in your blog. A first consideration is: Whose interest do I want to capture?
Here's an introduction to some of the capabilities of EasyBlog - my fav blogging utility that dovetails with Joomla.
There are lots of reasons for starting / maintaining a blog on your website. The reason you have a website in the first place can usually be applied to justify having a blog.
A biggie - no time to blog!
If you can't spare at least 10-15 minutes several times per month, anything you post is likely not going to obtain much of a following.
OK. You may not have thought about adding a blog to your website, or you may have considered it at one point but didn't choose to pursue it. It's not too late!
