So I’ve helped my mom to set up and start a weblog, to be found at DianeAbernathy.com. She’s a real estate agent, herbalist, teacher and more, it should make for interesting reading. Go check it out, I’m making the case that a weblog is much better tool for building an online presence and influence than a typical real estate agent’s website (for instance).
Incidentally, I set the blog up using WordPress, which I mostly find to be pretty good software. I’d recommend it for anyone who has their own server, it was about the quickest and easiest software to set up that I’ve ever seen. And so far it works pretty well, too.
