Why a blog?

January 10th, 2009

So, after blogs have been popular for 3 or 4 years I’m finally hopping on board and taking the time to learn some blogging tools. I used the blog tool which comes wtih CMS Made Simple and I must say it’s a pretty handy thing for a site which is to consist mostly of static text with the blog function being secondary. WordPress, however, is definitely where it’s at for a site which is to primarily function as a blog. It’s incredibley easy to install on your own server so you don’t have to worry about your site needing to be hosted by blogspot or anything like that. The user interface is really intuitive and attractive, and the ability to intergrate static pages in addition to the blog content is a real plus. Over the next few months I hope to start designing my own themes and even setting up a few small social network sites using WordPress. Stay tuned.
