For the newbie WordPress may seem to be a little intimidating. However, because there are so many users, you can find help on hundreds upon hundreds of support sites and forums should you encounter a problem. If you can send emails, use a word processor and use Facebook, you have enough skills to create and maintain a site with WordPress – it’s that easy. Don’t let the little voice in your head tell you that you are not good enough!
The bottom line is – WordPress dot COM – all online, not much for you to set up; dot ORG – on your own domain and hosting, you are responsible for maintenance and upgrading (even if you get someone to do it for you). Yes, there are plugins which can do the upgrading, but there’s always an element of risk.

There are two types of WordPress Website. One is a free website hosted by WordPress themselves, many of which can rank very high in the search engines if they are suitably keyword rich. However the disadvantage of WordPress websites hosted by Worpdress is that if you infringe their terms of service they will delete the site. On some occasions you infringe their terms in error or without knowledge you were doing anything wrong. Yet the advantages of WordPress Websites, hosted by WordPress is that you get a feel for the software and its possibilities before you set up your own site.
I thought I’d share how I create my blogs and websites. I am not a programmer or professional web designer by any means. However, I have learned the ins and outs of setting up a blog. The Think Entrepreneurship blog was created using the techniques I am going to explain to you. I’ve helped many people get their blogs set up, and they were created using the exact same techniques that i have used with the Think Entrepreneurship blog. Our blog was created on a bootstrapping budget using a domain register, hosting service, the free and open source wordpress platform, and a web design program named Artisteer.
Why pay hundreds of dollars for software when you can use this one for free. Even if you plan on running a commercial website or blog, you can still use it for no cost to you.
