Blogs are frequently updated websites where content (e.g., text, pictures, music) is posted on a regular basis and the information is displayed in chronological order. A blog provides a mechanism to establish an online presence as a childbirth education professional. The new blogger does need to learn new software and terminology; however, there are many resources available to help get a blog started. Keys to successful blogging include maintaining a regular schedule of posts, keeping the posts fun and interesting, and providing information that is useful to the audience.
