  • WordPress?

    I currently have my website with Office Live Small Business. This has been great since I got in during beta testing and they provided the hosting and domain name at no charge. My thought was to establish a web presence now in anticipation of a part-time business when I retire from my day job. Then after a while they stopped covering the domain name (although they did offer a no cost alternative), and now they're stopping their free hosting. All this to say I'm not ready to spend the money for a website just yet. A friend recommended something called Wordpress. Apparently they offer free hosting for a very minimal web presence where I can display pictures of my woodworking along with short descriptions (which is all I need right now). Does anyone out there have any experience with this site? Are there any others to look at? I'd appreciate the advice.
    . . . because each piece will be someone's heirloom someday.

      Wordpress is the way to go for websites in the future. There is and also in the .com site things are quite limited and can change at any time. In the .org site you have complete control over content and layout. You can change content at anytime and as often as you want. You do need to have a domain name usually about $10/yr and hosting is as little as $3.95/month.
      Send me a pm and we can talk more if you want.

        Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

        I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

        These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
