The blogging functions on Shopify are poor. They don't look good at all. I don't want to go with WordPress on a subdomain, I need it on the main website to get all the SEO benefit. Is there a simple way to create blogs that integrate with my store? I have given Shogun a try but its takes a long time to create the blog and there is a limit on how many blogs I can create. It costs $40 a month!!!!!!
I am looking for ideas and inspiration on how I can create good looking blogs on the store. Any ideas and suggestions are highly appreciated.
There is a great app called Blog Studio that is an awesome alternative to Shogun. Since it focuses on just blog building, it's a lot cheaper than Shogun at $14.95/mo instead of $40/mo. It's a drag and drop builder that you can use to create templates or use one from their line of premade templates. From there, you can create your blog posts with ease.
I hope this helps! If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
Shopify itself can produce pretty rich blogs but it does require creating the templates you want for blog display and design.
Here's a few examples using only the native Shopify template & liquid includes:
None of this is automated though .. but once you set up template types it expands what you can do beyond the default page/post starting point.
