Want to Build Your Website Using WordPress? Great Info Here!

February 20th, 2010

Hi All!

Many people don’t know that you can actually build a website using WordPress. Yes, WordPress is not just a blog tool anymore. As a matter of fact, my new website,, was built in WordPress so that’s a great example of what is possible with using it as your web building tool!

I love having my new website built in this platform! Why? Because I can up-date my content as often as I want without having to contact my webmaster for every little change, and I don’t need to know html. Being able to make the content up-dates myself saves me time AND money…no more monthly web maintenance bills from my webmaster. Woohoo!

Making up-dates to the pages within my website are as easy as writing a blog post! I love that. Plus, my WordPress blog (the one you’re reading right  now) “lives” within my website because it’s all done in that platform.

Another benefit? SEO! WordPress has a very easy-to-use, free, SEO widget that easily allows you to add keywords and tags to each of your pages, so that helps your search engine rankings and traffic.

If you want to tackle designing and building your new website using WordPress, here is a great article that takes you through the steps. Builing A Simple Website Using WordPress. This article also outlines other benefits, as well as outlines the process.

Or, you can go the really easy route (like I did) and hire a webmaster who knows how to do it. Plus, I’m not a “designer” and I wanted my site to look nice. If you want to hire someone, I recommend contacting Kristin Craig, owner of 428 Designs. She has a lot of experience creating sites in WordPress and her pricing is very reasonable.

Okay! Go for it! I think you’ll be really happy creating your website in this tool and you’ll love how easy it is to maintain it!

Cheers and Happy Marketing!
