OK I read some of the replies, lots of good stuff there, I can see some that it can relate in your reply, sounds like treat it like a website almost, sounds about right though. I do use social media and sites like that for postings etc. (and found it does make a differences, at least for me it did, but certainly levels off to those interested)

Yes thank you all for all the reply's,
I have done some searches and went with WordPress, as I was creating it and started posting things it notices I have a wix website and it all connected to it automatically. I didn't know either that wix and WordPress is the same sites. It made things really easy, and easy to understand.
I will be redesigning my website in the next weeks to be making it a bit more professional/cleaner, it think it looks crowded or something but sure take a look at what I have blogged or some of my work @ ios-graphics
Wondering if anybody blogs about/for/or because of there business you do blog. In some research there saying blogging can be a power tool in an art, service, or any industry that changes quickly. (I guess any business this was an art enthusiast and his examples)
Wondering if anybody uses blogging for a means of connecting by providing information to your customers (or to be) or can be use to there value. Has it helped? what about directing traffic to your website from the blog? Do you provide information in your blog or do you blog in a different way because of the type of your business you have?
Maybe you found you started to blog and you found negative results, and putting in extra time doing it. If you did or do blog wondering if there was a strategy opposed to talking about your product or service, only.
