There are two things of how people use with their online presence. One is only blog website, and another is personal website.
Personal website is a superset of only blog website. It can have blog, about, contact and any other page as required. If you a book writer, then you can create a separate page in your personal website which shows your books or if you have a podcast then there can be a page for podcast details. So, the idea is personal website can have many things which describe you. People can see total information from your personal website.
On the other hand, blog website has just a blog page where people can read your blog posts in reverse chronological order. It can have an about and contact page as well. Blog usually has links to other websites (blogroll) where people can access other information about you.
Currently I use wordpress.com for just my blog posts. You can find links in my blog website to access my other information for example LinkedIn, Twitter etc.
I am blogging in wordpress.com platform since 2011. Theme is the second important thing in a blog after URL. They have a rich amount of theme collection. Since I joined I used a lot of themes from their library. Some are really good and some are not. I always like simple layout of my blog. Being said that there is one theme which I used most of the time in my blog and that is ‘Twenty Twelve’.
I used this theme for at least two years. After that I switched to other. But did not find a good replacement of that any more. Most of the free themes in their library has bad font size now a days.
In the almost beginning of 2018 I again make my mind and start using the ‘Twenty Twelve’ theme. Hope it will restore my blogging habit to some extent.
Everyday we need to do many things like our work and personal things. But time is finite for a day with 24 hours. It is a common problem for everyone to manage time efficiently in those 24 hours. I hear people tell that, so many tasks to do and so little time and how to manage time etc. It is hard to manage time and our own workflow in just 24 hours. Sometimes we sleep less, give less time to family and remove low priority tasks.
WordPress.com is not only one of the most popular blogging platform on the internet but it is a community which helps you to writer better blog posts and maintain good blogging habit. They have many programs which encourage you to blog and maintain your personal blog or website.
Time management is not easy. Maintaining a good balance of all the things in life in daily basis in hard. As a blogger we often fail to manage time for writing. Our blog remains untouched days and then weeks with no new posts.
