We started a newspaper about four years ago and in the hopes of giving our artists, musicians and writers more exposure and getting more interaction from our audience, Im thinking it might be good to convert our site to a blogsite. Here is our current site:
Welcome to The Beachside Resident
I came across this site Drift Magazine and I liked the jukebox and built in galleries that will make the online version of our newspaper more interesting and easier to manage.
I guess I'd like some feedback as to whether this is a good idea. Should I make part of it a blog and keep part of it html? Are blogs as easy to market to search engines? Is it true that once you start to get 10,000 hits per day wordpress gets bogged down? Having no experience with blogs, will I have trouble building and designing one?
