Default Do I Really Need A Blog?

I have approximately 30 unpublished articles and I'm not sure if I should continue publishing on my website or launch a blog. I would love to know your thoughts about why so many businesses have blogs and if there are any benefits.

I guess I found part of the answer with this post: http://www.smallbusinessbrief.com/fo...ad.php?t=26291

However, I still want to hear your opinion...

Blogs help to promote business as like it is an advertisement...

Blogs with unique content can yield you back link and traffic to your site.

Not only can they increase traffic to your site, if a blog becomes successful enough it can provide you with another source of income.

I would publish them in a blog format. First of all, the organization of blog posts is more dynamic, with tags and categories. Secondly, readers can contribute comments, which is very valuable for any site. Additionally, readers may choose to subscribe to your updates, which will increase traffic.

In addition to the reasons already mentioned, another very important one is that a blog has an RSS news feed. Your blogging software will normally ping a number of aggregator services such as Google BlogSearch so the word gets around rapidly. This will bring you traffic you can never reach with simple articles on a website.

I recommend you get a blog (a self hosted Wordpress blog).It has lots of benefits compared to a static website.

I would also recommend a blog. Blogs are very search engine-friendly and can deliver more traffic than traditional websites.
