It recently came to my attention that I have not yet composed a post regarding the platform I use to convey the material on my blog, said platform being WordPress. I have been using WordPress for several years now, both with my own personal blog and further with various academic assignments.
For one of my college courses this semester, we have been asked to design a blog depicting a subject we are passionate about. Once this separate blog is complete, I will link it to OnTheEdgeOfEverything, and creating a separate blog with WordPress has encouraged me to acknowledge just how fantastic this platform is for any person wishing to express themselves creatively.
WordPress has countless templates and themes for individuals beginning a blog, and a majority of them are customizable, meaning they can be tailored and personalized to best suit a users preference. There are widgets and plugins available for use, and there are templates available for any type of website imaginable. Whether it be for business, personal use, academia, or work, there is arguably a WordPress template that will satisfy all of your requirements.
To date, I believe I have four separate WordPress sites, all for different purposes. The largest is OnTheEdgeOfEverything, and it has been my own blog that has urged me to comprehend how accessible and practical WordPress is as both a website-building and creative tool.
If you are new to WordPress and are looking for some tips and tricks, feel free to shoot me an email, or simply look to Youtube for some useful tutorials. WordPress itself contains instructions for each individual theme it offers, and a Google search goes a long way in terms of determining how to configure the layout of your own site.
Overall, I give WordPress an A+, and I will likely continue to use it in both the working and academic realm.
