Getting Started With Wordpress Tutorials
This is a series of links to tutorials to help one to get started in using the Wordpress website/blogging platform for putting up a website/blog.
But First - Why Wordpress For Your Website?
- The Wordpress software is the most widely used blogging/website software in the world - that means it will be around for a long time with a lot of support.
- You can have your website hosted for free on Wordpress.com (the largest blog hosting site in the world), including plenty (gigs) of free space for images, sound files, and video files.
- Wordpress.com is fully integrated with the Web, meaning every post is automatically "pinged" and potentially syndicated out to other major websites and search engines.
- For a few bucks (about $10 a year) you can even have your own website domain mapped to your blog on Wordpress.com (but this is not required, it is an added option.)
