I use WordPress, for my blog, because it's an easy to use content management system Gone are the days of coding to use, or to build a blog, it is so easy to build a WordPress blog, I actually taught myself how to use it. So you know things such as such as the you know, the different themes that are out WordPress, even though you know whether there's a free free theme pay theme, it none of that matters.
It's easy to install, it's easy to install WordPress, on any hosting whether or not you're using SiteGround, or Hostgator, or Bluehost, or any of these hosting companies, they usually have a feature within their hosting platform of WordPress, installing WordPress, installing them on their servers. So it's very easy to use, it really is, you know, as easy to buy a domain name from any one of these, any one of these companies and convert it to your hosting, which is a couple of clicks, basically a couple of clicks, clicks away. So it's real easy to come up with a domain, you know, the name of your site.
And to install WordPress, the WordPress platform, you know, I'm the hosting service. So it's, it's, um, it's the ease the ease of using it. That's why I believe it attracts. So many developers that attract so many bloggers, is the ease, it's very easy to use. Even when you're using things such as you know, things such as the plugins, it's easy to use the entire dashboard. It's easy to use, it's easy to post, you know, content, it's easy to find and upload media, finding upload images, you know, it's easy to make pages is easy to manage your comments. It's just easy, it's easy to just customizing it, you know, the entire appearance of the of the blog. It's really easy to use.
Also the menus and all that stuff needed to build the site, the entire ecosystem of WordPress, you know, from the, you know, developers making the plugins and all that stuff. It's just easy. Me personally, let me let me put this out there. Like I said, it was self taught for me. I don't know how to use anything else. It's not that I don't know how basically I don't. I've never used anything else other than WordPress. And most, most websites that's on on the internet are built on the WordPress platform, believe it or not, I've never used anything else.
And I'm sure there's probably other platforms that that are great. I only talk about things that I use, for the most part. And in this case, Wordpress, it's going to be easy for almost any beginner to build their site. Once you build the site up, it's easy to post. It's easy to upload images and write content. Now I always say don't write. Never write content inside the WordPress platform because if you lose your information or whatnot, if you accidentally delete that post then you're, then you're S-O-L "blank out of luck."
Do that you want to do that in some like Google Docs or maybe, I don't know WordPad or some whatever anything but inside the WordPress platform because like I said, if you lose it you're you're screwed. I don't Know how to use anything else. I've never used anything else. That's pretty much the reason why I use and why I always talk about WordPress for blogging.
