Get Blogging with WordPress 2.1

by eric on January 25th, 2007 in: Web DesignWordPress

The long-awaited WordPress 2.1 has just been released and is brimming with improvements.

If you haven’t heard, WordPress is one of the coolest blogging platforms available. It’s easy to install, even easier to use, and quite simple to customize with a little knowledge of CSS, HTML and (for the adventurous) some basic PHP.

Wordpress has excellent documentation on the WordPress Codex and effective community support on the WordPress forums.

Personally, I’m a fan of running blogs from my own hosting account because there’s more flexibility in customizing the design and functionality by modifying CSS or adding plugins. But, if you don’t have your own hosting account, you can start blogging for free over at WordPress.com and they’ll host everything for you.

If you’d like a hosting account to run WordPress on your own site, I can certainly recommend a great host, just contact me.

Finally, if you’d like to learn more about WordPress and keep up with the latest news and plug-ins, check out the WordPress Podcast.
