OK, I’ve spent the entire evening reading dozens of blogs about WordPress, and have found a ton of interesting information. Last night I set up a Win2k3 server and installed XAMPP with WordPress 2.0 (now upgraded to 2.0.1).
I’m doing a little research on how to install themes, plugins, manage the system and so on. My plan is to find a host (any experience with GoDaddy?) and manage my own WordPress blog so I have more customization options as I want to grow. That of course is not to say I don’t like the service on wordpress.com, but I do want to have complete control of my blog, so hosting my own is the way for me.
WordPress is very impressive!
