by llprice – For some time, the web has needed some type of web platform for small businesses and organizations that is easy to setup and maintain by an average computer user. In the past, if site owners couldn’t afford the time to locate a web guru, or the money for a few updates, their web sites could quickly became “stale” or filled with broken links and inaccute information.
Hooray for WorkPress.com!
Now WordPress provides the kind of easy-to-use access that fills the void. It allows ordinary computer users to login and post urgent messages to customers, timely news, current images, or other media on their own terms, in a convenient and efficient manner. Owner can change information, delete old content, and even take comments from their readers. Best of all, WordPress sites can be quickly launched with one of several professional looking “themes” selected from large and growing themes gallery. No special design software, scripting, or HTML knowledge required.
How blogs are organized
The most current posts are always “on top” at WordPress “blog” sites. Older posts are below, in cronological order, but the oldest posts don’t require regular weeding and maintenance; they eventually slip away into “sidebar” archives; available if someone needs to look them up later. (dated messages of little value CAN be altered or deleted by one or more administrators at any time, through it’s just as easy to let them fold into the archives over time.)
Some information should always be on top. That content is placed in “pages” like this one—and this page can be deleted or edited later too.
All it takes is a computer, an Internet connection, and a user with the inclination to communicate. The WordPress community is always developing new tools to make blogging easier and more fun; from comment-spam-blasting software, to picture upload widgits.
At WordPress.com, users can start small (free) and eventually grow their site with affordable upgrades as more space or flexibility is required.
