Frugaling.org is nearing its 5th month of operation and the earnings are still going strong! In fact, writing and working on this has turned into a nice side income. The site has been growing and growing, and because of that exposure, a lot of people have begun asking how they can emulate the process. Plenty of people have something important to share, but few know how to do it.
The key, as I’ll explain below, starts with WordPress. It’s is an open source blogging platform that makes up the foundation for a variety of blogs and news sites.
The following are five key reasons to use WordPress:
1. The Price Is Right
The platform is entirely free and accessible for a variety of uses. There are no licensing fees and its entirely expandable for anyone who uses it. For the frugal fiends and friends out there, this may be the most important part. It’s development is publicly observable and you can file bugs, ask for support, and seek help entirely on WordPress.org.
2. Show Your Expertise
Google has recently begun pushing authorship as a factor in credibility. Your public writing ability may account for future job opportunities and having a WordPress site may become essential. When it comes to increasing your side income or making a living, nothing helps more than solid writing that’s publicly accessible; by doing so, it quickly puts you a cut above the rest.
3. Easy To Use
WordPress is one of the easiest, most flexible blogging design platforms available. I’ve been using the framework for about 6 to 7 years now, and never had a problem with it. There are tutorials and learning materials for educators and students. Likewise, when users immerse themselves into the WordPress platform, learning immediately begins (with welcome messages and videos). A variety of support networks have also formed. By using this software package, you will significantly remove the difficulties associated with getting started.
4. Private Or Public
WordPress allows for flexible privacy restrictions and can tell Google (and other insignificant search engines) not to read certain pages. Thinking about growing your business and/or blog? WordPress sites allow for multiple contributors, editors, and users. All of these high-end features create an easy-to-use environment for you and your consumers.
5. Latest Technology
When using WordPress themes and formats, you can trust that you’ll be using the latest technology that works across browsers. For instance, today’s WordPress themes normally utilize HTML5 web standards, which are accessible across browsing environs (e.g., similar design on an iPhone and desktop computer).
