  • 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.

      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.

        Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...

        There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

        Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.

        In truth, the scroll saw part involves only the creation of the blank and the cutting of the concentric rings. That's what distinguishes scroll saw segmentation (both...
