Each week I’ll be explaining a term or an area of social media.  If there’s anything you’d like me to feature, feel free to drop me an e-mail to michaela@fuelledbysocialalchemy.com.

WordPress: An easy-to-use, open source blogging tool (taken from WordPress.com)

Tell me more…

So, you’ve decided that you want to start a blog.  You’ve come up with your schedule… and what now?  You need a location to host it, of course!  If you do an online search for blog hosting sites, you’ll see there are many different hosts: Blogger (also known as blogspot), Livejournal, Typepad… – and, WordPress!

So, why WordPress in particular?

As some of you may already know, I love WordPress – I host all my blogs on there.  Here are a few reasons why…

– It’s free!
– It comes with brilliant statistics
– You can link it to your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr and Delicious (any many more!)
YouTube videos can be embedded
– WordPress.org lets you host from your own domain; WordPress.com gives you a domain
– It comes with LOADS of adjustable templates
– As a directory it has heightened SEO
…. my list could go on for a while!

In the next few weeks I’ll be offering tips ‘n’ tricks on how to use WordPress effectively – so, keep an eye out!
