As I learn the ins and outs of WordPress thanks to Kerri Richardson’s blogging class, I am creating this entry to play with the different ways to format a post. Look for the “official” launch of this blog in the next few weeks.
The class has been excellent so far in teaching me new features of wordpress and blogging that I did not know about previously. I have used google’s blogger site for a previous blog and I am learning wordpress gives me more features and capabilities.
Some examples of items I have learned in class:
- I can install wordpress with a web service provider and have my own custom URL for my blog, instead of having wordpress host my blog at their site.
- Installing wordpress gives me more capabilities for plugins, themes, and appearance than using the standard setup.
- Through flickr I can add royalty free photos to my blog posts from their creative commons area. It is a good idea to have a photo with each post!
