Isn’t WordPress just for Blogging? NO! Get a Website at WP

What if I Don’t Want to Blog? No Problem!

Many people think that a WordPress site is “just a blog” and that you have to write every day to keep it going.
You can use it that way – WordPress makes it easy to build an online journal, or “blog”.
But if you prefer you can make all static pages. Build a few pages with photos of your artwork or product or hobby, write a bit about yourself and your business or interests, and make it easy for people to find you if you want to be found.
Just like a “real” website!

Your blog can be part of your New Website.

You don’t have to let people comment on your pages if you don’t want them to ( comments are the best part if you want to build an audience!). And you don’t have to blather on about your private life every day if you don’t want to. Of course, if you do want to, you can.

 

You can build a few pages, and then never touch your website again — except to check occasionally to see if you need to hit the button that keeps the WordPress program updated. How hard is that?
We’re not talking about a lifetime commitment here.
Although it could be, if that’s what you want.

Why Should You Build Your Website With WordPress?

Because you can. Fast, Effective, Reliable, Genuine, Trustworthy.
Build a website fast, and you can easily change the way it looks whenever you get the urge.
There are thousands of free WordPress templates that you can use, or you can use the new default template that comes with the WordPress installation.  

Isn’t it Hard to Build a Website?

If you think that building your own website is too difficult, just give me a call 083  150 1100, I do 121 tuition and  you’ll see that you could have your own website up and running today or tomorrow.

Build your own WordPress Template here’s how.

It’s a bit over my head, but if you know CSS PHP go for it. Then you get a totally custom design, and it’s backed up by all the bells and whistles of WP.
