In 2008, I learned about WordPress when I was hired as a travel blogger and travel writing blogger with a travel company. In fact, using WordPress for your small business is the smartest decision you can make!
When I first started learning how to use WordPress, I was nervous. Why? Because I wasn’t a techie like the president of the travel company. And I have a confession to make: I didn’t know anything about blogging. Thank goodness I’m a fast learner.
For some reason, I thought I’d have to implement a bunch of HTML coding. Yikes! But, I soon discovered that WordPress.org was super easy to use. And the HTML coding that I had use, like target=”_blank”, was easy to learn.
After I got my feet with WordPress, I bought my domain name, Savvy-Writer, and created my own WordPress site.
There was a steep learning curve because I wasn’t familiar with taking care of a self-hosted website. But with help, once again, from the president of the travel company I blogged for, I learned the ins and outs of uploading files.
I get it if you’re scared about using for WordPress for your small business. I was. And on top of that, I read blog posts about people accidentally deleting their websites. But I pushed away from the fear and kept working at my website.
By the way… Don’t let website horror stories stop you from creating a website for your small business. If you need help, you can always hire a web designer.
