A couple of years ago, I created three websites– using an easy-to-use website building software package. I had originally started with WordPress, but did not find it very intuitive. It was slow for me. So I purchased the website building software package and was up and running in a very short period of time. I was grateful for the fast start.
As time went on, I found a need to add some operational complexity to these websites. This proved disappointing as the hosting service, that had sold me the license to use the software, was poor at support and actually had a different version than the one being sold directly by the software developer. Also, adding additional modules just created even more cost.
Frankly, I thought I was just stuck.
Then, coincidentally, I found the Wealthy Affiliate website. My personal interest in affiliate marketing had taken me to their site. In addition to their vast array of training, they offered free website hosting and use of WordPress. They backed up their advocacy with step-by-step WordPress training.
The training has been great and I am a bit embarrassed to admit that I did not originally see the advantages in doing all my website development in WordPress.
Admittedly, it is possible that WordPress is coming easier to me this time around; as it is the second time I have really gotten into it. Still, I feel comfortable and confident (still have much to learn) in making WordPress my foundation for website development.
