When setting up a blog what do you think are the benefits of having the blog on the index page as opposed to having it a folder.
e.g. steve's blog is at www.stevepavlina.com/blog/
is his welcome page
whereas other blogs I have seen are at the index page. e.g. at www.<namehere>.com and then they have an About page explaining about themselves. www.<namehere>.com/about.htm
The reason I am askin is that I have set up my new blog at the index page, however I'm thinking about shifting it to a /blog/ folder and having some welcome info and video clips on my homepage.
1) What are your experiences of the difference?
2) Given that I've already set it up, will it be difficult to make the switch. Im using bluehose and wordpress.
