Paul Dervan posted recently about Blogs V’s Websites. In the post Paul says:
websites are relics. They are static, inflexible, costly and clunky..Today, your online presence is about content. People come back to read (or see) what you are doing…So – dump the idea of building a website. Start a blog.
We got talking about this whole topic and he was telling me about a Blog on the Irish Autism site.
This Blog is great, its being written by a Mother talking about her experiences with her child who has autism and its really impactful. I actually think that this should be the home page for the Irish Autism site.
The Autism Blog is a great example of how a Blog can be a lot more effective than a traditional website. They are also cheap/free to put together. I can think of lots and lots of charities that would benefit from having a blog instead of a website.
