Wacky for WordPress

by | Aug 22, 2008 | Web & Technology

I’ve become a fan of WordPress. I have used it on this site for both my Cookie Chick food blog and my Drawing blog. I am not the most active blogger, but I have come to greatly enjoy the ease of creating entries and the joy that is WordPress.

At work, we are contemplating using WordPress to publish our news articles. As I worked on designing a new site for this purpose, I realized that WordPress already filled 95% of our needs. I suggested it to my colleagues who were intrigued by the idea. We have an internal installation set up now as we test to make sure it will work for our purposes. In the process, I’m reintroducing myself to WordPress and am delighted by the new features.

I mentioned to one of my colleagues that I use WordPress for my cooking blog. He said he was surprised that I don’t have a cat blog, since I blather on endlessly about my cats. I thought about it and decided it was a pretty good idea. I’m using WordPress.com to host it to try out that service. I’m very impressed so far. If you have your own domain, you can redirect it to your WordPress.com blog and have an instant site hosted for free. It’s a great resource for people to quickly put up a site and have a CMS built in. Blogging is only one use for using WordPress.

I’m now seriously considering changing my site over to a WordPress installation. It will give me the opportunity to play with customizing the themes more. I’ve done a bit of that, but I’d love to be able to recreate this site using WordPress.

(Since writing this article, I moved the WordPress.com hosted blog to my own WordPress Multisite.)
