A little something about Wordpress

Wordpress is a PHP-based blogging software that can be used on your own server or can be hosted at wordpress with a url like: .wordpress.com.

But a dedicated hosting will get you a good amount of flexibility and credibility. You can show ads the way you want to (provided you have a decent knowledge in PHP and CSS programming) and whats more, you're visitors will have a unique url to remember.

The process of getting your dedicated hosting blog is not for the uninitiated. You have to download a zip file, and then upload it to your server and obtain a connection with your MySQL database. I'm willing to bet that it would be worth while. Anyway keeping my fingers crossed and looking for a good, affordable web hosting solutions provider.

I definitely think a self hosted blog is the way to go.

It depends on what you use it for, but if you have any commerical aspect to your site, then your own hosted blog makes you look just that bit more professional in my opinion.

All the best,

Richard
