Word Press has just made it easier to set up your whole website.(WordPress.com are the people who host this blog!)
At first I saw WordPress as purely a way to publish blogs. However, you can add pages of content that is not a blog, there are pages to send emails, without exposing your email address to spammers. For me the only thing missing was a way to get email. For example I couldn’t get an email address of that ended …@noelg.net
WordPress have now changed that by fixing up with Google mail. I have just finished a site for a local charity, I suspect that the next one I build could very well be WordPress based. I almost want to build one just to see what is possible!
