Stop Writing Blogs for Free!

Are you one of those people who have a blog site and are constantly writing blogs? If you are, stop! You should seriously consider creating a website.

Don't get me wrong, blogs are a great way to express yourself and they are absolutely free. However, did you know that you could make more money (if you are already making money on your blog) by creating a professional website instead?

If you already know about domain names and web hosting and don't need any advice, go here to get your domain. If you would like some additional tips, click here for help on how to register your domain name and web hosting.

Below I have outlined some key points for both the advantages and disadvantages of blogs. Please keep in mind that this is just a short list.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Writing Blogs



  • Free
  • Easy to set up
  • Can make friends online
  • Can be used as a diary
  • Hard to maintain
  • Time consuming to constantly update
  • Will loose readers if not updated regularly
  • May be seen a unprofessional
  • May not be making as much money
  • May not be able to make it as a business
  • Limited designs
  • Long URL-Not customizable

I do not want to discourage people from writing blogs, I rather want people to realize that a professional website can grow to be a business that is very lucrative for you for years to come.

If you have an additional advantage or disadvantage, please let me know. I will add it to the list.

Now here are some advantages and disadvantages of creating a website.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Creating A Website



  • Professional look and feel
  • Can be a business
  • More customizable
  • Customized domain (URL) choices
  • Inexpensive domain cost
  • Easy to set up with site builders
  • Can make money (affiliate programs, sell products, etc.)
  • Can create an online store
  • Easier to promote
  • Monthly hosting fee (but many sites are very cheap)

Above is just a few advantages and disadvantages of creating a website rather than creating a blog.

One of the most important reasons why you should switch your blog over to a website is that it can really help you make more money. I just cannot emphasize this enough.

It is more professional, and by having a customized URL, it makes it a lot easier to promote to people.

Although there are some cost to maintain a website, there are so many other benefits that out weigh this small fee.

Companies like Savvy Websites offer cheap domain prices, web hosting, web building guides, online shopping carts (if you have a store you want to market on your site), professional e-mails, marketing tools and so much more.

They even offer 24/7 customer support and can help with setting up your website. There is no reason not to transfer from writing blogs to a lucrative website business. You can still create a website that has a blog.

How Can I Make More Money With A Website?

The key is to build a quality website, use social media sites to promote it, tell everyone you have a site, get set up with Google ad sense and other pay per click companies, become affiliates with companies related to your site, promote other peoples' products, and so much more. The list goes on and on with countless ways your site can make you money. Why not give it a try?

Savvy Websites offers domain purchases for about $10 a year. It is at least worth a try. Try it out for a year and then contact me with all the details of your success.

What Should My Website Be About?

Many people are intimidated about having their own website. I can totally understand that. I felt the same way, but there were way too many advantages for me to not give it a try.

I have had my website, Writing Savvy, for over a year and it has really grown into a prosperous business that has supplemented my income. I was nervous to start my website at first as well, but I jumped at the chance to earn a few extra bucks-and boy did I!

Your website can be about anything you want, just like those who believe in writing blogs. You do not have to sell anything, and you can still make money. Informational sites, like this one, make money too-if not more than those who sell items. The important thing here is to create a site that you are interested in. If you like butterflies, make a site about butterflies. If you like beaches, make a site about different beaches. It is as simple as that. It is all about how you market your website, and since you will be spending so much time on it (writing pages), you should make sure it is about something you are interested in.
