I’ve been playing with ones and zeros again. While in Portland I was desperate to go to Powells Bookstore, for both the experience and for a book on HTML. I found a book that I liked but I’ve only read 1 chapter. Why? Because I have discovered WordPress.
WP intimidated me when I first started blogging – so I went with simple and easy (and I like Google a lot) but WordPress has enticed me. I was frustrated at first, not understanding the differences between WP.com and WP.org and WPmu (WordPress multiple user) so I did what I always do, went looking for a book. I like to read Amazon.com reviews on books and I found that the book WordPress for Dummies (I have never liked the “for dummies” titles just on basic principle – I’m not a dummy) but this book had much better reviews than all others, so I bought it. It lives up to it’s reviews.
I’ve practiced blogging in WP, and importing my blogs from blogger to WP and I am coming to like it more and more. And now, at the end of the book, is a section about using WP as a web platform – hallelujah!! I hate my web software with a passion (Front Page and Web Expressions) and I can’t wait to try WordPress for my website. I’ll keep you posted 🙂
