Better late than never (supposedly)! I have never blogged before, and figured that it was about time. As a computer consultant, my clients, family, and friends seem to expect that I know just about everything that is computer. I will let you in on a secret … I don’t. But I am constantly learning new things in my own personal attempt to stay as relevant as I possibly can. Once I become familiar with WordPress, there will only be several hundred other items on my “Stay Current” to do list!
I will share more about WordPress in particular as I continue to use it. But for now, I am certainly impressed by how easy this immersion is. Creating the WordPress account and blog takes just a few minutes, and gives you the chance to create your URL, name your blog, choose its theme, and a few other details.
One important distinction that was very important right up front – the difference between wordpress.com and wordpress.org. Wordpress.com blog sites are hosted (for free!) by WordPress. Wordpress.org blog sites require third-party hosting. I chose wordpress.com to keep it very simple.
Here’s to happy blogging!
