Use SilkStart's blogs tool to create a stream of dated posts to highlight achievements, topics your members find interesting, or other information. Your blog is ready at any time for you to begin posting at yoursite.silkstart.com/blogs.
Do you already have an external blog with Tumblr or Wordpress? When clients make the switch to SilkStart blogs, they typically choose to transfer over the last ten blog posts and backdate them. With a healthy amount of historical content, you can start posting with SilkStart!
