Many of my friends asked me how you did it, what do you need to run your own blog or site, is it difficult to learn and things like that.
Well, first of all working with WordPress is very easy, doesn’t require any special knowledge and the best thing it is absolutely free. The only expense is getting a domain name and web hosting, however, these are not charged by WordPress. So what makes it so great?
WordPress ia an open source Content Management System (CMS), mostly used as a blog publishing application. It has many features including a plug-in architecture and a template system. Used by over 12% of the 1,000,000 biggest websites, it is the most popular CMS in use today.
Have you used WordPress yet to implement your blogging skills? If not, then you should discover its fantastic features:
1. Easy Operation, Maintenance, and Installation
WordPress is very easy to setup for your own blog site. It is only one button installation click and it will be ready in seconds. Blog maintenance is also easy as it is not done everyday and required only when there’s any update from WordPress.
2. There’s a plugin for that!
WordPress has a huge number of plugins available, and almost all of them are free. As with installing WordPress itself, installing plugins and widgets couldn’t be much simpler. Simply upload the plugin to the right place, and enable it via the control panel. Widgets can be dragged and dropped into place.
Themes can easily be added to your WordPress site. There are a wide variety of both paid and free themes that can make your blog as unique as you and your business. If a theme does not suit you or your business, it can be changed within minutes. Here you must be careful about regular theme updates. You don’t want to be forgotten through the years.
4. Search Engine Optimized
WordPress is search engine optimized and very search-engine-friendly right out of the gate. It will automatically format page titles, page names, links, the content on the page, and so on for maximized search engine optimization.
WordPress can be set up to automatically submit your article entries to search engines for indexing, further maximizing your online exposure.
Because WordPress is open-source, it is freely available to be downloaded, installed, and used on your own servers. This makes it extremely cost-effective. It would cost a lot of money to have a custom CMS developed that could do the same thing that WordPress does, but why spend that much?
WordPress is an extremely user friendly blogging platform. It is a very popular choice for small business owners and entrepreneurs and it’s my personal recommendation to anyone considering putting up their own website or blog. To be honest, I can’t imagine any logical reason for using anything else.
