  2. Hi GG!

    You mentioned recently that WordPress gave you some trouble. Is it better now? I know someone who aspires to start her own blog about local events, and it’s tempting to steer her toward WordPress, but I would value your opinion. She is from the generation before personal computers, but knows enough to update and upload HTML pages and use a word processor. I’m tempted to tell her to take a course at the local college that gets a blog running from square one. $400 is cheaper than paying a developer, right?

  3. Lore,

    It appears, and I am not an expert by any means, that a wordpress update(s) interfered with Firefox security features. I am still having some issues, but it is bearable. I have heard there are sometimes similar issues with other free blog sites. After all they are free. There is also a book: WordPress for Dummies, very informatative.

    WordPress is very easy to use. I recommend it. There are many, many online videos and websites to help get one started that are free. Just make sure to back up weekly, so you can reload content if necessary.

    I can tell you that the media library storage is limited. If she is going to have alot of documents and pictures, she may end up paying for an updated site for the storage space. Safe the $400 for that. The videos I put up are embedded and don’t require storage space on wordpress sites. The other free blog sites are similar.
    Good luck to your friend.
