  1. Great Series Marlene!

    I am looking forward to helping with the next round of podcasts and I thank you for the invitation.

    Wordpress is a wonderful blog software, yet some people like myself use it for much more. Wordpress is a great CMS or Content Management System for small to medium sized business websites.

    Content Management Systems are simple to maintain and easy to update website software suites. The reasons why using a CMS is so advantageous are many, but the main one is ease of use for the end user.

    All of the heavy graphical work is handled in CSS, leaving the user to do what most people want to do with a website - enter information that their customers want to see in a timely and attractive manner.

    Some CMS platforms are open source like Wordpress and Joomla / Mambo or Drupal, others are proprietary closed systems. I prefer to work with open source. For small businesses looking for an easy to update, easy to manage and attractive website with unlimited page capability but not too wild graphics or heavy database features, Wordpress is very hard to beat.
    Lets keep this discussion going!
    I look forward to helping in any way I can.
