Network Solutions, a Herndon, Va.-based Web-applications firm, this week is hosting a free webinar on small-business blogging, the company said Tuesday.

"To Blog or Not to Blog" will look at the benefits small-business blogs can have on networking, customer outreach, and other marketing strategies by evaluating how owners have used blogs to generate traffic to their websites and gain valuable customer feedback, the company said.

"We want to make sure that small businesses are clear on the great financial and communication benefits of blogging," Jeff Grossman, senior vice president of product marketing and management at Network Solutions, said in a statement. "Social blogs are mainstream and extremely popular, but we want to help businesses uncover the many reasons that they should consider having a blog."

The Webinar will be held on May 9.
