WordPress is a free open-source content management system you can use to make a blog, website or ecommerce website.
“WordPress is web software you can use to create a beautiful website, blog, or app. We like to say that WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.”
WordPress is open source. It is created by volunteers, so you don't have to pay anything to use it. There are thousands of plugins and themes available. Some are free, some cost money. WordPress is very well supported. It has been around since 2003 and over 60 million sites use it.
You can choose from themes here: wordpress.org/themes/
You build it: Tell me what login and password you want and I will set up a WordPress site for you to build your website, blog or on-line store yourself.
I build it: I can install whatever Theme you choose and customize it with your copy, photos and custom menu.
Just let me know how much you want to do and how much you want me to do.
Free and not-so-free WordPress Themes and Plugins allow you to run a complete shopping cart on-line store. WooCommerce is the most commonly used free eCommerce plugin. It now powers 30% of all online stores. It allows you to sell physical and digital goods. It configures to free shipping, flat rate shipping, even drop shipping. You can accept major credit cards, PayPal, BACS (bank transfers), even cash on delivery. You control taxes, stock levels and customer accounts. I can help you through every step of setting up an on-line store.
I strongly suggest you choose from themes that are marked as Popular. They have better documentation and are updated more often to keep up with changes. Even though thousands of websites use the same Theme, we can customize the Theme and use unique photos or illustration to make sure your site doesn't look just like every other site.
This is a WordPress blog to monetize our vacations on Hilton Head Island. I created this blog to experiment with some of the features in WordPress. And to turn all our vacation photos into traffic generating content. This blog demonstrates some of the features of WordPress. It is currently using the Sela Theme.
Energy Services is a WordPress website using SiteOrigin's Vantage Theme and Page Builder. The client already has a successful business, but wanted to add a simple web presence and a contact form. I researched and wrote the copy, then the client made it accurately represent his business, since I was pretty much guessing. This site was completed in just a few hours.
These personal blogs demonstrate some of the features of WordPress. The Underground World of Caves blog, above, is currently using the Spacious Theme by ThemeGrill. I experimented with linking to the style sheets and scripts from .html pages for a consistent look and feel between the blog and the site pages, without having to give up the page names that have a lot of incoming links. The Ireland blog, below, uses the Hemingway Theme by Anders Noren.
mydesign42 is a personal blog to drive traffic to www.brandlighting.com. It currently uses a heavily modified version of the Bouquet Theme by Automattic. Other than Google and other search engines, it is the source of most traffic on the client's website. I can put personal opinions on this site. Blogging can be fun!
