You’ll find out what the two “flavors” of WordPress are and why we’ll use the self-hosted WordPress.org version. Then you’ll go online, sign up for a free hosting account, and tour the WordPress Dashboard.
What can a blog do that a website can’t? Blogging’s become a popular way to establish an online presence. We’ll discuss how adding a blog can make a traditional website more effective.
