How To Add A Blog

Blogging is one of the many ways you can reach out to people and be where they are. If you're not familiar with a blog, it’s similar to an online journal or diary. It's a place both to convey your ideas and gather new ones at the same time. With a blog, you can share products, methods, or get a conversation started about anything you would like. 
 
In this article, we will discuss the basics of "How to Add a Blog" to your WebsiteBuilder website. If you do not have content to add to your blog yet or need help getting started, we recommend reviewing the default articles that are present when creating a new blog for the first time.
