Which Blogging Platform Should I Use?
January 25, 2011 Leave a comment
This one might surprise some of you, but a huge number of websites are built on or around a blogging platform. The reason for this is that many blogging platforms are very user-friendly and easy to work with from both a web designer’s perspective and the website owner’s perspective. Once the website is designed, the website owner is usually able to easily update and maintain the website themselves, which gives them more control over the site and saves them having to hire a designer for every little change.
If you are looking for a blogging platform that can also serve as your website, here are some things you want to look for:
- A platform which is both easy for you to use and also very easy for your web designer to customize.
- A platform which is highly functional and capable of growing and expanding to fit your needs and wants over time.
- The ability to use your own domain name. Again, this looks more professional than having your blog on a sub-domain of the platform’s domain.
