Self-Hosting Your Blog with WordPress

5280 Software LLC Website Design and Development

If you are going to be even remotely serious about blogging (meaning using it as more than just a journal for your thoughts), it’s important to self-host. What this means is instead of using a platform like Blogger, you download software that is customizable. The predominant software of choice is WordPress. (Make sure you go to WordPress.org. There is also a WordPress.com that functions similar to Blogger and I’d avoid this since if your blog takes off it’s inevitable that you’ll end up switching to the .org software version.)
