Fast forward to today (actually this month). The software I use for websites has been kind of buggy, even with a new computer, and Blogger is making changes as well (nothing significant but still) so it got me to thinking that since I have my own web host for my websites (all except for this blog) I figured I might as well check into WordPress since it is free (as opposed to hundreds of dollars for most web design software). I love free!
I figured I would experiment first on my website (better than with my client's websites of course), then I checked out a book from the library on the subject (WordPress for Dummies if you must know) and read through it, then this morning I checked out my webhost and found that I didn't actually have to do anything to set up WordPress, just push a button. So far, so good! Then I found a theme. Then I spent the last four hours altering it to my liking (with a lot of help from the book and Google). This is the result so far. Also, if you are following my other blog, I moved it from Blogger to my website which you can find here. This Cash Only blog won't be going anywhere for a while. After a bit more of learning about WordPress I will switch over my other eight websites...which should take a good long while to do.
- If you can get good software for free...that's awesome!
- You can learn any new program/software for free simply by checking out a book or going online!
- Once you learn a new skill (in this case WordPress) you can sell that skill to others and make money!
