Building a Home for Library News with a Blog
Have you decided to join the blogging craze? You can buy software packages to start Web logs, or rent server space, but you can also build your own if you want something customized. Like choosing a new house, you'll want to explore all your options—renting, buying, or building—before you decide. If you prefer the latter, as these authors did, use their experience to guide your building plan.
