How I Learned WordPress

I first discovered WordPress over ten years ago, when I was looking for a blogging tool that could also be used to make websites. I had been using Xanga before that, and MySpace even before that. Anyway, it came down to Blogger or WordPress, and I picked WordPress because it looked easier to customize.

I think I made the right choice.

Hello, World!

This is the default post that comes with every new WordPress installation. I have a tradition of using it to introduce my website instead of deleting it as most people do.

So, here is my latest creation.

I have re-branded my freelance web design business to give it a more personal touch. Using my last name, I want people to know when they hire me they are getting me a person and not just a web designer. What this means is that in addition to helping create websites, I am also committed to education my clients on how to use their website to accomplish their goals, whatever they might be.

I love WordPress because it gives people control of their own content. It’s simple and intuitive to use when setup properly and if you are taught how to use it. I have found most people are very excited to learn how to update their pages and even start blogging.

Using WordPress gives me the ability to hand a finished website while maintaining a working relationship to make sure my clients’ websites stay secure and functional.
