Adding Your Active Rain Blog To Your Website
I was reading a BLOG about one method of adding your blog to your website. I would like to also offer you two more methods which may work for you.
- I have a website for another business I own, and I wanted to add a discussion board. I created the board, then went into the area that lets me create new pages for my website. When you add a new page, you get the link either on the left hand side of your web page, or you get those little boxes that go across the top. My site has the little boxes. When you choose to create a new page, you are also offered the option of linking an outside page to that box or link, which is what I did. When someone clicks on that box/link it takes them straight to my discussion board. You can do the same thing with your blog....just create a link that says "Blog" or title it anyway you choose, and you have a direct link which appears as a page on your website.
- For those of you who have software that allows you to
create images/banners, you may create you own image, whether it be a
text image, or a picture image, then add that picture to your website
with a direct link to your Blog. There are some sites on the
web that allows you to create linking banners too, especially if you
have have a MySpace page, they have all kinds of sites for creating
interesting images/banners which you may add links to.
If you know how to create an image/banner, but do not know how to add links, you can do a search on the web for basic HTML commands. My favorite way is to use NVU.com software, which is a free HTML editor which works very much like a word processing program. Go to NVU.com and download the free software, then go to the BLOG I wrote explaining how to use this software. It took me a short while to figure it out once I used it, but we are all strapped for time, so I thought I would write a quick tutorial for the basics. I will probably re-write that blog now that I have been using the software for several months and I am now much more familiar with it. Keep an eye on my blog for the new tutorial. Hopefully, I will have this done in the next week. If not, I will get on it after the Thanksgiving Holidays.

NOTE: I recently changed companies for ethical reasons, and will be re-writing my Active Rain page, but need to leave it as is for a short while (an explanation is on my Active Rain page). I will also be creating a new website, and as most of you know, this can take a bit of time...it will be coming soon!
"To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breatherd easier because you lived. This is to have succeeded." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
