Lisa Sabin-Wilson is one of the true WordPress wizards in this world. She has written what I think will turn out to be one of the premier guides to WordPress. I can hardly wait for my copy to arrive. 🙂  Please see the blurb below but then follow the link to her site to read all of the details.

WordPress is one of the most popular blogging tools available, with over a million registered bloggers, and climbing!

WordPress For Dummies covers blogging basics, choosing a hosting solution or setting up a host, developing blog content, syndicating blog posts with RSS, launching a specialized blog (including podcasting, photoblogging, mobile blogging, and videoblogging), and even earning revenue.  Read it all


What site do you use to host your WordPress blog and why?

I am seeking opinions and comments on what site is working best for you with your WordPress blog?  I think I will need more than what wordpress.com can supply and I am to technically challenged to do a lot of coding stuff. I am hoping to find a site that offers more than an installer. The one I use now has that but the installer doesn’t make the software work without going in and making manual changes. Plus every time there is an upgrade, one must go in and do this manually. I have heard of some sites supposedly that have scripts or whatever to even automate this part.

Basically, any and all comments would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance 🙂

Ok, had to switch

I originally was going to host my own wordpress blog but I am so technically challenged that I was lost. I decided to host it on the wp free site and will see how this works out. So much more help and most is automated so I don’t have to learn all the details. I can let them do it so I am free for other stuff.

Hopefully this will all work out.
