QUOTE: Before diving into blogging, it helps to know what kind of platform you’re looking for. As a beginner, you’ll want a blogging platform that’s easy to set up, and doesn’t require any technical or coding skills. You’ll also need to think about what kind of blog you want to create, now and in the future. As your blog grows, you may want to change the look of your site and add more features for your growing audience. That means it’s important to choose a blogging platform that’s flexible, with room to grow. Starting off with the wrong platform can make it very difficult to switch later on. Lastly, even if you don’t have plans to make money yet, it’s smart to make sure you have the option to do so in the future. With all that in mind, visit the best blogging platforms for beginners.
WordPress.org: WordPress started in 2003 when Mike Little and Matt Mullenweg created a fork of b2/cafelog. The need for an elegant, well-architected personal publishing system was clear even then. Today, WordPress is built on PHP and MySQL, and licensed under the GPLv2. It is also the platform of choice for over 35% of all sites across the web.

“Technical Issues” is a category of posts prepared for “The Writing Pastor” workshop attempting to provide answers to questions that might come up related to the technical issues of blogging. I am not an expert … but willing to share my opinion and experience. Someone who knows what they are doing will probably find my generalizations hilarious. My hope is that someone who knows less than I do might find them helpful.
