how to build a blog? any suggestions?

by Arcsn 13 replies
Hi Guys,

I am working on a website now, and I will need to add a blog into it.

what do you can suggest me: should I build a blog from scratch (and I have never done this before, any tutorial welcome) or should I link any other blog platform (my client is not really happy with this idea...)

any blog building tutorials or ideas or tips are welcome.

thanks in advance.

    In case you're still not sure: WordPress

    Why?
    It's quick to install (most hosting companies have a 1-click install option), easy to use (a little bit of a learning curve, but easy to get started and learn as you go), widely used (over 20% of all CMS based websites use WordPress), and well documented (youtube videos, training websites, resources, wordpress.org community, etc).

    How?
    Have a look at @imakeitwork's mini-guide above. Or just go to wordpress.org and get started.
