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.
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.
I have a personal target to post a single article in a week. I am blogging sience 2011 and never meet that target. There are four weeks in a month in average. In this way there are 48 weeks in a year (2015 has 52 weeks in total). My total post in 2015 is 49. So somewhat first time I meet my target in this year. 2015 is a good year for my blogging. I want to thank you all my readers.
If you are using wordpress.com for blogging, then this nice feature you can find useful. I am talking about blog archive and how you can find them easily. For this no need to log in to wordpress.com, that means your readers can use this process also.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for my blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,800 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 4 trips to carry that many people.
