WordPress Blog Sites: Easy Setup

April 20th, 2010

Today it’s a much easier task for a novice to build a website than it was a few years ago.  A popular way to go these days is with a blog site using the WordPress publishing platform. WordPress is free software downloadable from WordPress.org. The look of a WordPress site is determined by the choice of theme, or template, that is used.  There are free WordPress themes that can be customized, or you can buy profesionally-designed themes for under $100.

Plugins are software programs that can be downloaded as add-ons to your WordPress site.  There are all sorts of plugins that can add functionality to your site.  The WP e-Commerce shopping cart plugin for Wordpress is an easy-to-use fully featured shopping cart application suitable for selling your products on the web.

When you begin working with WordPress the learning curve seems steep.  “What in the world are they talking about,” you might think.  If you stick with it, however, you will learn how to add pages, posts, products and lots of other things to your site.  In the process you will come to appreciate the power of the WordPress platform.
