In such a scenario, what are the chances that someone searching for you or your profession reaches your site. Not much, if you have a static site, where nothing happens. Search engines like Google love sites which are dynamic and which keep getting updated regularly. A blog on your site helps you make your site dynamic and SEO friendly.
