Why WordPress you ask? Well, WordPress has been around for over 10 years and is a great platform to build and grow a website. Whether you are running a hobby site or running WhiteHouse.gov. WordPress can handle it all.
WordPress is at its core a blogging platform with the ability to grow with your needs. Plugins allow you to add more functionality to your site as you need. The possibilities are endless when it comes to customizations.
What do I want?
People tend to arrive at this question at some point in the process. What do you want? Do you want a website where you don’t have to do any setup or configurations? Check Twitter and you will see tons of people asking where do I start?
To answer that you need to know what you want first. If you want just a free blog no plugins, WordPress.com is your go-to spot. It’s free and great for just a blog. Yes, you can upgrade your plan to get more features but you are limited to the WordPress.com system.
Do you want to grow and not have any restrictions on your site? Then WordPress.org is the place to go. Although if you get a really good hosting company you won’t have to actually install WordPress the old fashioned way.
Answer this… What do you want?
