How to Create a Blog with Weebly
When it comes to weebly blogs, there are two sides to the matter.
- It is wonderful if your requirements are simple and if all you need is a means of providing broadcast information to your audience. Weebly provides an easy access to the blog comments for moderation.
- For real blogging with all bells and whistles, requiring heavy user engagement, roles, discussions, debates etc, Weebly may not be the best choice (yet).
Weebly is geared more towards creating a great looking website easily while giving all the flexibility needed for easy maintenance. Blogs in weebly is a good side dish when there is an occasional need for it.
Creating a blog is just as simple as creating a page. Instead of adding a new page, you add a new blog.
Rest of the features are similar to that of pages. You can make a blog private or public. You can include it in navigation menu or exclude it. You can move it under any menu or sub-menu. You can name it the way you want. And you can add as many blogs as you want. Here is a snap shot of a blog we use in Telugu Movies Etc. You can add a picture to the post too. We used plain text.
Once in the Blog page, the elements made for Blog appear in the elements section. The ‘Read More Break’ which is useful for showing excerpts of long posts, and the ‘Blog Side Bar’ which can be used to add Blog specific items, will be under the Elements Tab.. You can drag-and-drop Blog Side Bar elements to display archives, categories, social badges etc in the side bar of the blog. You will be able to add all elements to the blog post including photo galleries, slideshows, video player, embedding documents etc.
To review comments, you can either choose ‘Manage Blog’ or check from your site list.
The Blogging works very well for getting your message out and enables moderate user interaction. For small businesses and non-profits, engaging with customers and members through blogs is a key activity.
