WEBSITE - BLOG BUILDING INFORMATION – A website or a Blog can be created by many companies.  I have in this Blog emphasized Google blogger, since it is free and easy to learn.
However, if you have a budget set aside to pay for professional help,  do so.  Unfortunately too many websites and blog designers do not produce what they promised.  In the end the content that you provide and promote is more important than a pretty website lost in space. 


Avoid These Mistakes  This applies to website and blog.

OTHER BLOG AND SOFTWARE CHOICES -  There are many choices to make in getting your website and blog created.  We at SCORE can help you in this manner.
