Open question to all of you bloggers who are reading this: Do you use WordPress? If not, what blogging/website building software DO you use?
If you’ve been blogging or building any sort of websites, Internet presence, etc., you at least must have heard about WordPress blogging software. I cannot remember when I first started blogging, but I do remember that I’ve always used WordPress software. (I’m not talking about one of the free blogging accounts you can find at WordPress.com. I’m talking about the free software you can download from WordPress.org and install for yourself.)
I’m asking this because another writer whom I respect just published a very useful and free ebook about writing. (You can get a copy of that ebook here, but you will be required to leave your name and email address.) The first chapter in that short ebook speaks about creating your own blog about writing — and he strongly advises AGAINST using WordPress for blogging, insisting that it’s really much too complicated to set up and maintain. To be fair, his ebook is not specifically about blogging. And his expertise is not blogging.
But I thought about his advice, and I realize for someone who truly wishes to focus on writing, WordPress can, indeed, become too much of a distraction.
Or, maybe not. What have you found as a blogger/writer — what works best for you? Leave a comment and let us know, will you?
