Wordpress is free... and it's easy. Easy to install, easy to configure, easy to maintain.

  • Domain name and website hosting
  • Wordpress installation and configuration
  • Installation of plugins and themes
  • Adding pages and blog posts to your site

Using Wordpress to implement your own website provides many advantages:

  • Save money by doing it yourself
  • Maintain creative control of the end product
  • Update your own web page, when you want and how you want
  • But most of all, have fun!

Good luck and happy SkillSharing.
