How to Create A Website

If you trying to learn how to create a website, then I'm very happy you've found this article. It's simple these days to create a website by actually creating a blog. Blogs are today's website, and much better than the traditional static website, in so many ways. For the Internet completely social media focused now, with people sharing this and liking that, and blogs are much more social media friendly than traditional websites.

With a WordPress blog you can do everything to a blog than you could to the traditional, static website, and more. And the beautiful thing is that you don't have to have a lot of computer know-how, nor any coding/programming knowledge. Anyone can learn how to create a website in just a few hours.

Fewer and fewer business people these days are hiring someone to build a site for them. Why spend hundreds or thousands of dollars paying someone to create a website for you, when you can learn how to use WordPress or other blogging platform and have it running professionally in no time. If you hire someone to build you a website and don't understand coding, then you have no control over if you want to change it. If you're anything like me, I'm always changing and adding to my website. There is always another new idea, something that I want to move or remove, a rewording of the text. And that's what blogging is all about - adding, updating, engaging. Traditionally it was a business nightmare having to pay someone every time you wanted a change, or just leave it the way it was. And of course when you're at the mercy of a webmaster, you have to wait for them to make the changes you require....Ahhh, the greatness of the blog. To simply login and make the changes, so fast, so easy. No cost.

There are three main blog systems available today - Blogger, Tumblr and WordPress.

Blogger. Blogger is great for beginners or those who just want a personal blog, but not recommended for a business website. The admin is easy and simple, and blogging is done with drag and drop functionality. But there a limited variety of templates and no plugin capabilities (plugins are programs that with a click of a button can add super functionality). So if you want advanced features you would need HTML and coding knowledge.

Tumblr is also great for personal blogs with focus on images and videos, and doesn't offer plugins for increased functionality. On Tumblr you can "follow", "like" and "share" content within the community. Your domain name is shown as part of Tumblr, but you can set up a customized domain via a host such as Bluehost.

WordPress is the way to go if you want to learn how to create a website for business purposes. Wordpress allows you complete control and gives you endless options of design, capability, and functionality. There are thousands of WordPress themes to choose from, each theme offering a different look and capablities, with customization. Add plugins for functionality and the variety of what you can design and do with a few clicks of the mouse, is limitless.

In summary, don't spend too much time and mind-power trying to figure out how to create a website in the traditional sense. Find a good WordPress training program, and you'll have your website up and running in just a few hours.
