Jazz Blog

Freshness Warning
This blog post is over 16 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current and the links no longer work.

Anyone can blog. As proof, take a look at my grandfather’s blog about jazz music and his friend’s jazz band, the Greg Hester Trio.

Using TypePad, my grandfather is able to easily maintain the site, list upcoming events, review jazz CDs and link them to Amazon product pages and more. In getting Grandpa Abbey started, I helped him set up the design and help him understand how to enter content. After that, it’s been all him.

The site’s growing. You wouldn’t think that a blog about old jazz and a small jazz band from Napa would get much traffic. But he’s gone from nothing to a few visitors a day, just by publishing great content. After a few weeks, I’m sure traffic will build.

My grandmother can use a bit the computer and the mobile, a blog is really something more challenging !!! One of these days I will have a look to TypePad and check if I will be able to do the same..
