How does DropInBlog work and for who?
How DropInBlog works
DropInBlog is the simplest and quickest option for someone looking to have a beautiful and customizable blog on their website.
DropInBlog works by inheriting the CSS of the website it is embedded into. Embed a few lines of code and your DropInBlog will inherit the typeface, colors, look and feel of the actual website.
Who does DropInBlog work for?
DropInBlog is designed to help people who have no or poor blogging options for their website.
People looking for an easier way to start and manage a beautiful blog.
DropInBlog is a popular option for starting a second blog especially on WordPress sites.
It also works for anyone looking for a more customizable blog. We offer the option to add custom CSS code even if your website doesn't allow direct CSS customization.
