Welcome to my New Blog

I was thrilled to discover that I can insert a WordPress blog into my website and still retain all my website content. The blog that is provided with my website software package has been bugging me for a while. There are so many deficiencies with it:

  • You can’t post pictures or videos
  • The links don’t look like links
  • You can’t change the colour of the font
  • The RSS feed for subscribing to the blog doesn’t work
  • The RSS feed for following a particular blog post doesn’t work

All in all it is just not sophisticated enough now that I have become a regular blogger. However, I am happy with the rest of my website content and didn’t want to have to redevelop the whole website from scratch. So, I was pretty chuffed when I found out that I could have the sophistication of a WordPress blog but still show it within my main website URL.

If you want to refer back to any previous blogs, just visit the archive blog, which is listed as a sub-page of the blog, and you’ll be able to find them all. You can find the blog archive through my website at: www.dianemannion.co.uk – just hover over blog in the menu and the blog archive tab will appear; click on that tab and you’ll be taken to the relevant page.

I’ll be posting part five in my series on becoming a freelance writer next. This one is all about attracting new customers so please subscribe to the blog if you don’t want to miss it.

  1. Thanks Alice, and thank you for being my first comment. I’m really pleased with my new blog as I didn’t have any stats with my old one regarding the number of views etc. I didn’t even get an email if someone left a comment. I’ve already had more than 200 views and have a handful of followers since I launched it a few days ago. I’m sure your shout outs have helped as well so thanks for them. It was well worth spending a couple of days to set the blog up and figure out how to link it to my website.

    • Yes, the stats supplied by WordPress are excellent. I’ve found them very useful and I’m quickly building up a following. The amount of hits I’ve had is off the scale compared to original website. You’ve definitely done the right thing by coming here. 🙂
