Episode-3- Don’t Be Cheap and Use Word Press

Filed under: Podcast — Tags: , , , , — JackSpirko @ 3:45 pm

In episode three I discuss a few important things. First the importance of spending a little money on hosting and a domain name. You are trying to build a business and a brand, you don’t do that with yourname.blogspot.com or yourname.wordpress.com you do it with YOURNAME.com and hosting is so cheap that it costs less than a cup of convenient store coffee each week.

Next I discuss some of the reasons I really like wordpress as a site platform, hosted on your own server and under your control of course. I also discuss some of my favorites plugins like

  • Buddy Press
  • TweetMeme
  • SEO Smart Links
  • All In One SEO Pack

Please note that while I provide links to these plugins you can install them with a click or two from the plugin section of the admin area on any WordPress blog.

I also recommended Host Gator, if you that link you will get a discount when you set up an account with them. I currently use three different hosts to create redundancy with my sites, HostGator puts them ALL to shame with their levels of 24/7/365 support.
