Hi! I am in the process of building an author website on wordpress. I was hoping for any tips and advice from people who have had websites for a while. I was debating on if I should have a blog or not? Does anyone here who writes fiction find it helps bring traffic to their site or do you do it more for fun? Also how detailed are your author bio, especially if you use a pen name and don't want to reveal to much about yourself? What things have you found are worth paying for when designing a site and what would be a waste of money?

These are really just general questions, any tips and advice would be appreciated.
