Article Marketing Guy Presents a Few Thoughts on Blogging & Freedom

My computer beat me at checkers, but I sure beat it at kickboxing.”
~ Emo Philips

The above quote, while funny, was probably thought up by someone trying to build a web site.

I remember when I first started back in the late 90’s. Junk programs that did not work. Very frustrating.

My first revolution came when my first internet mentor Tom Antion, taught me how to use Microsoft Frontpage. Tom has the gift of making the complicated simple, and Frontpage was simple. It made sense. I could do it. Built many, many websites and web pages with Frontpage.

Then I made the mistake of allowing a business partner to talk me into learning DreamWeaver for a project we were working on.

Big mistake. Almost killed us both.

So I went back to Frontpage, because is was easy and it worked.

Along Came Blogging

My first blog was built in Blogger. Simple, but limited. Then I moved on to Typepad. Better, but a bit more complicated.

Then I was introduced to Word Press.  And I haven’t looked back since.

In fact, we build almost everything know in Word Press. That is, my team does, even though I know how. It’s cool to have someone else build it and just add the content and strategies.

But because it is both so simple and powerful, I can build new sites from the ground up. Not in weeks. Not in days. Not even in hours. In minutes…

So that is why we are so excited to bring you an opportunity to bring you someone who is  the Queen of Word Press – Christina Hills! If you like this blog, it is because of what we learned from Christina.

    It’s great to hear about your experience and I guess my first comment is that wherever possible to outsource the whole thing if you can, retaining the ability to add you own content. Second thing is to find a tool that you’re comfortable with – for me that’s Joomla. The third thing is to remember that you website is a function of you marketing and not something to display the technical prowess of a web designer.

    I remember when Tom Antion sold an ebook about how to write your own eulogy… pretty niche if you ask me.
