Listen in as WordPress "guru" Taneya Koonce explains how easy it is to get started with WordPress and build your society's website (including a blog).
Many organizations use WordPress as the platform for their websites ... big and small ... from BestBuy and Xerox to the North Carolina GenWeb Project.
Some of the benefits of using WordPress:
- It's FREE**
- Allows you to focus on your content rather than spending all your time worrying about your layout
- Your content is readily searchable on all major search engines
- It's easily customizable
- Many (20,000+) plugins can be installed to perform pretty much any task you can think of to automate your site, leaving you more time to create content
