You can get a little naughty and use a script to have some crappy content set out as a dummy. When their software copies this content, they would be getting some weird texts, funny pictures and multiple loops going back to the host server, resulting in a server crash.

Blogger is another blog platform that is easy to use. It is simpler to use than WordPress and lacks its sophistication but still looks like a website. Both platforms have plenty of tools to enhance their appearance and anyone learn to can use them. Of the two, WordPress is by far the best option. It is the most versatile and the most widely used.

Even though you should vary the length of your posts, I would recommend you only focus on solving one problem with one solution in a single blog post. If it means your post will only be very short, there is no reason not to publish it. You can write another post about the same problem with another solution later if you like. Just do not state the claim that this particular solution would be the only one.

WordPress Plugins. There are 20,000 These are small additions to the website that make the wordpress platform transform into a magnificent spectacle. If you wanted to display Google Maps, or have a form for collecting emails, or import RSS Feed Content into your sidebar, or have a shopping cart. Every possible requirement you want will have a plugin that will do it. 80% of these plugins are free.

When you are ready to start flexing your blogging muscles and really tweaking your theme to specifically fit your business or purpose, keep in mind that you can search Google and YouTube for text and video answers to most of your questions. So many people are blogging now that I have found literally all possible questions I have asked have already been answered by someone in either a support forum or a YouTube video. This in and of itself is reason enough to use a popular platform like WordPress. You’ll never be without support, and it’s free!

Strangely, opposite to many website software, the end design of the site isn’t fixed. You have a choice of 1000’s of free website themes, plus 1000’s more designs that can be purchased. If you every wanted a singing and dancing website, WordPress is your answer.

At the cost of sounding condescending I would say plugins are the reason why you would self-host a blog. They are the things that make your blog look professional in comparison with a Blogspot or free hosted blog. They are also the reason why search engines respect you more.

CSS, this is one of the most important parts of any website to be honest and no more so with your wordpress theme. This CSS files will tell your wordpress theme how to look. And that’s the reason we doing it ourselves right? so we can make it look, the way we want it to look.
