The words you are reading just now have been written in and are brought to you through WordPress. This post is a review of a book about WordPress, but let me give a little introduction before I jump into the subject matter.
When I started blogging about five years ago I was looking for an easy-to-use platform. A friend of mine recommended WordPress. I had already acquired the hpbech.com domain and selected one.com as my web hosting provider. I am not a programmer and usually avoid investing my time in software technicalities. Getting WordPress installed on my one.com account was not a “one-click” trick. Through wordpress.org I found a helpful soul in the UK who did it for me. I made a donation to him and he became my WordPress tech support. Much has changed with WordPress since then. Today getting a WordPress blog in the air is a “one-click” effort and the software is pre-installed on most web hosting centers in the world.
