Blogging

Hey Guys Gals and Aliens,


I'm in the process of my fourth website version in 8 years. I'm thinking of adding a blog for our photographs and video demos. I have my own domain, and was wondering if anyone has a suggestion for friendly blogging software to add a flexible blog. I specifically want folks to be able to share off the blog to facetwitter land.

Thanks.

Re: Blogging

WordPress is pretty much the most widely used blogging software...

Re: Blogging

WordPress for sure. In fact, WordPress is an amazing CMS as well as blogging tool. I'd suggest creating your entire site using WordPress.

Re: Blogging

I agree with Chris. Wordpress has evolved from a blogging tool to a complete CMS package. When I started, I had used wordpress for my blog/articles. Now it has completely changed. There are many options available in wordpress (themes independently developed and available free of cost). I am happy because you can create an impression of professional site with content displayed according to themes. You may check the diary section of my site IndiaWilds Diary - Tales from India's Wilds

All the best.

Cheers,
Sabyasachi

Re: Blogging

I went with the Godaddy blog only because it integrated so easily with the rest of their products, (Wordpress does also work). I was under the gun to get a site up and figured I would switch over once the pressure was off. But for how I use it it seems to work quite well. Just wanted to give another option.
