June 24th – A Week With WordPress

My final post, but certainly not everything you can do with WordPress.com, is about WordPress.org for those of you who want a little more control.

June 24th – A Week With WordPress

The final day with WordPress focuses on expanding the WordPress universe to WordPress.org which gives users/bloggers more control over the look of their blog.  Wordpress.org is a service which you need to find your own host, download and install the software and then read up on the documentation to maximize your WordPress.org blog.

What is great about the WordPress.org platform is that a lot of major companies use it.  You might have noticed when you are logged into your WordPress account and surfing the web, some major websites have the WordPress banner across the top of the page.  These companies are using a very similar CMS (Content Management System) as you – and that’s pretty cool.  The WordPress.org website has a lot of helpful documentation and their are plenty of other resources – and like everything else on this blog, it’s worth a try!
