Should I consider a blog?

Why The Name Oatmeal Girls?

Blogging is very popular with many people.  It may, or may not be the right thing for you.




Have you thought about a blog? What does blogging entail?


What is a blog?

A blog is sort of a running commentary.  It is usually updated on a regular basis.  Blogs have become very popular because it is a convenient, inexpensive way to get your message out to others.


How do i start? What are some blogging options?


You don't need a website to have a blog.  There are many free sites that will host a blog for you.  The two most popular sites for this are Blogger and Wordpress.  If you look, each site tells you that it will only take seconds to sign up for a blog, and it's true!  They offer various "looks" that you can choose from, should you decide to blog.

So, free, sounds like a good deal, I should just do it, right? What have I got to lose?  You have nothing to lose!  It is free, it is easy, go ahead, do it!  It's a great way to get your feet wet and see if you like blogging or not.  And, don't forget, it's free :-)!


suppose I really want a website but also want to blog?


Couple of things you can do here.  Buy the Website name you want ( www.GoDaddy.com ) and then we can "point" it to a blog you've already started from Blogger or Wordpress,  The cost to you is the price of the domain name and renewing that name each year.  There is no  hosting fee because you would keep the blog at the blogger or wordpress site.

If you like more control and want to have it on your own site, you (or us) would buy the domain name and we would put Wordpress directly on the server for your use.  The costs for this involve the cost of the domain name and renewing that name each year, as well as an annual hosting fee to OatmealGirls.

So, it's really a matter of personal preference.  Just have fun with it!!  If you have questions, find the info on our Contact Page .
