Many of us know people who have blogs. Perhaps you’ve even thought about blogging but didn’t know what it would take to set one up on your own. There’s so many different options to choose from: Blogger, WordPress, Movable Type, Typepad, Livejournal! If you decide to go with one of the hosted services like livejournal, wordpress.com or blogger, then chances are you you’ll have an ugly non-memorable URL like cynthia1234.blogspot.com or billyjames4567.wordpress.com – while these are functional, they’re not very practical. They’re hard to remember and they don’t seem very professional if you want to put them on a business card or your company letterhead.
What you may be interested in is hosting your own blog on your own account. The added advantage to this is you’re not tied to the third party service and their terms and conditions. You can say what you want, when you want and you don’ t have to worry about losing your posts should they decide to start charging for extra services or close their doors altogether.
Every WebNet Hosting account comes with a suite of programs called Fantastico Deluxe — including the most up to date and most popular blogging platform, WordPress. Just look for the little blue smiley face in cPanel. Within just a few minutes you can have your blog up and running, changing it’s design and adding thousands of additional features through WordPress plug-ins with just a few simple clicks. Surveys, image galleries, shopping carts, all can be integrated within WordPress through it’s state of the art plug-in system.
If it seems above your head, WordPress has a thriving community support forum where your answers will more than likely be answered in a few hours and, if you really get stuck, you’re always an e-mail away from WebNet Hosting’s 24/7 support where our support representatives have been using this powerful blogging tool for years – some since the very first version.
Let your voice be heard, keep friends and family up to date with your life, all with WordPress.
Soon I’ll be posting more information on how to install and configure this fantastic software on your site.
