Blogs and banners.
Request from: urtimelyal - Premium member
"I'm wondering if you might consider a follow up to your blog by way of sharing your thoughts on the function (purpose) of both blog and banner? Everyone has an idea what they are, But their uses are pretty specific. Also, would you comment on how these dynamically correlate to the purpose and thematic message of the website?"

Why a blog? Good one - the main difference that we should consider is that a blog post is "pingged" the moment we publish it!
This means it starts being circulated in the search engines immediately as oppose to a regular static website whereby Google and the other search engine robots may take weeks to index your page/s.
Why a header? Another good one - think Coke, Nike etc - when you get to their site you recognise the "brand - logo - picture" straight away. So after a few visits, people begin to remember seeing the name - logo - picture, which of course applies to your website to!
Thematically speaking - in simple terms, stand back, look at your site and say - is it pleasing to the eye? If so, your visitors may well stay on your pages much longer.
Hoping this answers the thinking Al @ urtimelya and thanks for the question.
Feel free to do as Al and shout me request or question you think we should blog about.
