Now that Blogger has added the ability to add 10 new pages to a blog, it's even more tempting not to maintain a website.
I've got one over at http://www.morganmandel.com/, but I have to admit I don't update it anywhere near as often as my personal blog. That's because blogs are designed to be interactive. The news is fresh. I can see almost immediately when someone makes a comment and can answer right away. A website doesn't offer that, unless--
Unless, you have the best of both worlds and can somehow place your blog prominently on your website, so people can still makes comments. I still don't know how to do that, but I believe there is a way. I do have links to my blogs listed there, but that's not the same thing.
Anyway, the next best thing is the extra 10 pages Blogger offers. I've already set them up at http://morganmandel.blogspot.com/ . If I don't incorporate a blog in my website, someday I may change the layout of my blog so it looks like a website. Until then, I'll keep my main website at http://www.morganmandel.com/ . I may always keep it. There's so much over there I'd hate to waste it. If you've got nothing to do, stop over sometime. You may find something of interest there.
If this post seems all over the place, that's because there are a bewildering number of choices. You can tell I'm not exactly sure where I'll go next, or what will happen next in the blogging world.
What about you? What do you prefer - a blog or website? If both, how do you manage them - altogether, or separate?
