How you can make Ones own News Blog.

Making a news blog is not much different really to developing a normal blog if you are setting it up. Purchase a domain name, install your software (I recommend WordPress) and pick a theme. But that's once the differences can start.

A different layout to a discussion blog
With a news blog you might not necessarily wish to highlight the most recent posts on your property page. Although you will most likely wish to list them there, if you're adding plenty of stories then there can be important entries that you wish to lead with on your property page. For example, really newsworthy posts might deserve a characteristic at the the surface of the page but those 'dead donkey' items that you've decided to include could desire a listing further down.

So this provides us an idea regarding the layout of the house page - there would have been a featured item at the the surface of the page and then a listing of all other recent bits of news, along side teasers, further down the page.

Side navigation is essential
Also, being truly a news blog you might not predict which items your readers will discover most interesting. Yet it's these that you wish to make available to other readers. So in your side navigation add a most widely used posts list. It's probably far better use one that calculates popularity based on page hits and looks back throughout the last day approximately to work this out.

So you have the look of one's website sorted, you will need to just add the content. And which can be the hard part. Where have you been going to get a reliable supply of regular news items from? You can try 'auto blogging', in that you simply basically steal content, but that's negative for your blog.

Sourcing quality news for your blog
Instead you will need to locate resources of news items and add them manually to your blog. Write up the news in your own words and include it in relevant categories to really make the blog easy to use. Just taking all of your inspiration in one website and rewriting what you will find there is in peril to be accused of plagiarism. To get the job done properly you will need to utilize several resources of information and to add your own personal opinion, statistics and value to each news item that you post.
