I welcome you to take a look at my blog

I want to email my friends. Are they both correct?

    "Welcome to my blog" is OK.

    "You are welcome to do something" is not a greeting, but similar to the meaning of "you should feel free to do something."

    ray8838, thank you.
    I will ask it again. I want to email my friends that they are welcome to take a look at my blog and to add a link to my blog.

    My question was if I could use "you are welcome to..." in this context and if that was the right way to say what I want to email them.

    1. You are welcome to take a look at my blog
    2. I welcome you to take a look at my blog

    Are they both correct in my context?

    Actually, I don't think we have enough context to determine the most appropriate wording here. What else are you saying in this e-mail? Are you e-mailing them just to tell them that they can look at your blog?

    There are many possibilities:

    You are welcome to...
    I invite you to...
    Feel free to...


    But they are not interchangeable. Context is crucial here.
