    Not sure this is the right place but ...

    I have a blog and I write what could be articles for it, is it better to blog and keep the content fresh or write articles and have links generated or is it ok to do both, blog it and then submit the entry as an article with a link back?

    Sorry if this is a dumb question...

    I don't think it is dumb. I am trying to decide myself.

    i think you shld do both. blog it and then submit the entry as an article with a link back. I do the same with my cooking site :) Articles can get you deep links, and a good way is to link to the same article from within the article. This will get you some deep links also from a number of websites, all linking back to your blog.

    A quick search of DP should help you find directories and/or individuals to do the submissions for you

    there are so many blogs out there so to make a good one you would have to have new content everyday and not make it a link farm like all the other shit out there. I would do both though

    Thanks, my stuff is pretty original because it's about my kids ;-) although I have been selling links in it - once I'm done writing those entries though (so much fun to try and tie links into something related to parenting and my family - but a lot of work for $5 bucks!) I'll try submitting some of them.

    Thanks for the thoughts and advice!

    it was dumb of you to think as a dumb questions, because sometimes it is difficult to understand a simple solution for a simple problem

    do both Lisa. But here's the thing.

    Let me elaborate on the main difference b/w a blog and article directory. Article directories are just that-- a depository for people looking for info.

    Having an effective blog is a bit different. Yes, you can certainly write articles but the real successful blogs are those that are uptodate on what's going on in the blogosphere. Food for thought.

    and oh, http://www.ezinearticles.com is the most popular.

    feel free to give me rep if you like my answers. i could use some :)

    And what about duplicate content?
    Is that why you say, change the text?
