Blog connection to a website

by arldoll / February 8, 2004 9:54 PM PST

I'm eager to add some interactgivity to my well-established site, but my techie knows nothing about'blogs'. I've read books and can't get what I need out of them. My webhost accomodates blogs to sites but also no help doing it.

I'm fairly new to blogs myself. My blog is at:


The most simplest way would be for you to create your blog and then provide a link to it from your home page. At least for the moment you will have a blog already created and done - while you learn the more complicated way.

The most popular blog out there is called "WordPress" which can be hosted on your own server and you can change whatever you want. The second one would be the blogger from google. You can use their host and have the advertising banner show, or you simply change the FTP settings to your host and that way you are able to modify anything you want.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
