    I want to start a blog and would like a recommendation on which blog site to use. I think blog will help push me along with my goals.

    My web guy tells me that the best place for the blog itself is on your own website. Take a look at my California site and see what you think.

    Rick,

    My main concern about blogging on my site is the content. I plan on talking about the agent side of things(i.e. leads, commissions, cold calling etc.) as compared to consumer info. I don't think a client will want to read that I just made $xxxx off the policy I just sold them. What's your opinion of this?

    If you are trying to recruit agents, then why do you care what a client thinks?

    If you are trying to gain clients, why would you blog about leads, etc?

    No recruiting here that's for sure:) This is more or less a blog to motivate myself and perhaps share the ups and downs of this business with newbies like myself

    I'm no expert on internet marketing, but I think I'd rather put the effort into driving prospects to my site by using the blog. You don't need to post motivational "speeches." You can post all the motivation you want right here on this forum.

    Again, only my opinion. Generating new sales is the best motivation I can think of.

    A few people recommended WordPress. I set up my piece of sh*t blog a few months ago. I don't know what I'm doing and very few people visit. But I'm learning.

    If you care to see a poor excuse for a blog...click on the link. You'll regret it.
