As a result of the changing dimensions of life I have decided to focus on this wordpress site as part of my business, rather than being a place where I can have a say and have a go. Given who I am I am always going to want to have a say and have a go, so I have generated a new blog where I can be far more political or politically incorrect if I deem that appropriate. That new blogspace can be found at philipbarrington.wordpress.com.
If you are the kind of person who wants to have a say and have a go, you might find the wordpress.com option a useful option. It can get a little confusing so let me try and explain. There is a web application called WordPress. This exists in two environments.
- the free hosted one at wordpress.com where you don need a domain name, hosting fees or anything, however there are a number of limitations, which from the point of view of having a say and having a go don;t make a lot of difference.
- the free one you have to host yourself, where you do need a domain name, anmd a web host support php ad mysql. This has a lot fewer limitations and allows you to use a large range of plug-ins that may be available, either free or paid for.
This site is option 2, and the new blog where I can have a say s option 1.
As usual it depends on what yiou want to do and how much you want to spend.
