Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt
WordPress.com has become my friend a very good friend. I wanted to write and I discovered blogging through WordPress. I did not have the smarts, or ability to set up my own website and I found that through Word Press.com. The setup process was mostly done for me at no charge. I could not believe my eyes and ears as I first signed up for WordPress. I started to set up my site for blogging and it was up and running quickly. I have gone back and done a lot of tweaking on it, so readers can find their way around easier. It has become one of the most rewarding things I have done in my life. WordPress has helped me sharpen my writing pencil in many ways.
I had some ability as far as finding my way around the Internet and was computer savvy to a fair degree, but they provided the necessary tools for me to go about starting this blog of mine that I call My Mixed Blog. There are many writers, photographers and poets in the same position as me, who have little or no training as far as setting up websites and they have all benefited from WordPress.
There is WordPress.com and WordPress.org, there seems to be some confusion between the two. I found a comparison chart, that helps answer many questions about the two. I have a web address available for people want to compare the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org. By clicking on the following URL it will take you there. It is an educational and eye-opening experience. I know it was for me and to find out WordPress.com is owned by “Automattic, Inc. is a web development corporation founded in August 2005. It is most notable for WordPress.com (a free blogging service), as well as its contributions to WordPress (open source blogging software). The company’s name plays on its founder’s first name, Matt Mullenweg”
In my wild imagination a question comes up. What could their long range goals be, for providing so much to so many for free or little cost? We hope their long range goals are honorable. I hope my answer was found at the following address and we will remain friends for many years.
