In a nutshell, the WordPress software makes blogging easy and stress-free. Wordpress is recognized as the most comprehensive, and "search engine friendly" blog engine you can find. It has lots of built-in features, and there are also thousands of "plugins" available to make it do just about anything you could desire.
You don't need any HTML, programming, or website design skills required to get your blog up and running... and with the excellent "template" system, you can find (or create your own) a design theme that matches your own style with no difficulty. Even if you already have a blog somewhere else (blogger, typepad, etc..), you can quickly and simply import all your existing posts right into the your new WordPress blog!
Pinging: WordPress supports Ping-o-matic, which means every time you post or update your blog, all the search engines are automatically "pinged", giving maximum exposure to your blog for the readers.
Password and Spam Protection: You can password protect your posts, restrict people form viewing your posts, blacklist visitors, make use of proxy checkers and easily control and manage spam comments in your blog. If comment spam is a problem for your current blog, then switching to WordPress hosted by ET Web Hosting will be a huge benefit for you.
Rich text formatting: You can easily write your posts using the excellent "what you see is what you get rich text editor. If you're familiar with Microsoft Word or other word processsing applications, then you'll feel right at home with the WordPress editor. Adding style to your writing is just a matter of clicking the desired buttons in the toolbar.
Templates: The templates that WordPress offers are extraordinary, and there are thousands of them available. (Or you can design your own, or purchase and install one...) You can even have multiple themes for your blog, and switch between one theme and another with the click of a button.
Instant Updates: Updating the WordPress blog software that is hosted by ET Web Hosting is just as easily as clicking the "Update Now" button. No special permissions or changes to any files are needed. Just click a button, and it's done!
Multiple Authors: If you would like to have multiple contributors to your blog, then this is no problem with WordPress. Just create the new user and give them "Author" privileges.. and they can start writing and posting immediately! Of course, you can also set them up with "Contribute Only" privileges if you want them to only be able to write entries, but not actually "post" them.
