The Blog is Dead – Long Live the Blog

Website Building Platform Jimdo launches its Blog Tool Beta Phase - Jimdo Users can start integrating Blogs into their Website

Hamburg, 29. April 2008. Why not integrate a Website and a Blog tool? Jimdo’s creators asked themselves the same questions and decided to, starting today, offer users the opportunity to integrate a Blog into their free-of-charge Website creation tool.


Jimdo’s founders are convinced that integrating a Blog and Website tool provide users with more benefits that ever before. „A personalized Website perfectly complements a Blog“, said Matthias Henze, co-founder of Jimdo. „The addition of a Blog adds a whole new dimension and dynamic to a Website.“ What Jimdo’s Blog tool offers that similar tools, including WordPress, cannot is the ease integration of a wide range of content into each Blog entry. „With the ability to add photos, videos, widgets and much more, we are establishing a new blog standard,“ said Henze.


The idea of bringing together a Website and a Blog tool under one „virtual roof“ came to Jimdo’s founders directly from users. Many Jimdo members wish for a one-stop online platform where they can shape their Internet identities. In the near future, a Jimdo-Page can offer its users: „One www address where they can set up their integrated and complementary Website and Blog. With this addition, we are coming tantalizingly closer to our goal of providing users with a central, online point of reference that means all of their online needs“, said Henze.
