When I created my first website with WordPress in 2008, I created everything from scratch. I created the theme from scratch. I coded up everything. But, now I’m at the point where I’ve learned there is no need to recreate the wheel. Now when I create a WordPress website just point-and-click, copy and paste. You don’t need all the complexities of learning code, HTML and PHP, or anything like that just to get your website up. I m going to tell you why you should use WordPress for your website.
The first reason why I recommend you use WordPress to create your website is because it’s really simple to use. Let’s say, you want to add a new page to your website. All you have to do is log in to your admin area and go to ‘Add new page.’ You type in the page title. You type in your page content or copy and paste it. In the content area you have a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor, with options like ‘B’ for bold, ‘I’ for italics. I know somebody sitting there saying, “Oh man, that’s just like creating a Word processing document.” You’re right! That’s how easy it is to add your content. When you’re finished adding your content or you’re finished making changes to your content, you’ll click the little button that says ‘Publish’ or ‘Update’ depending on what you’ve done, so far. That’s the first reason why I recommend WordPress. It’s just really simple to use.
The second reason is that you can make it look the way you want it to look because there are thousands of themes available for you to choose from. All you have to do is decide, “Okay, do I want one column, two columns, or three columns? Do I want something that already has the colors I want or do I want something that I can change however I want? Do I want to have different page layouts or is the same page layout good for me?” You just decide what you want.
The third item is that you can make it do what you want it to do. You’re like, “Huh?” Well, let me put it this way. Let’s say you want to add videos to your website. Great! There is a plug-in you can add to your website to display videos. A plug-in is a small piece of code that someone else in the WordPress community has written to add additional feature to your website. Maybe you want to collect leads, people’s names and email addresses so, you can send them messages. Hey, great! There’s a plug-in that will do that. Anything that you want your website to be able to do, you can make it do just by simply adding a plug-in. WordPress can already do a lot but, for some things you’re going to want to add a plug-in.
If you notice, I have not told you that you have to learn HTML or PHP because, you don’t! That’s not required for you to create your own website. You can create a website without learning HTML or PHP. Take action now and create your website using WordPress. Why? It’s simple to use. You can make it look the way you want to. You can make it do what you want it to do. Lastly, no HTML or PHP to learn.
