Trying to Set up a Business Blog

Why We Will Make a Website

Yellowstone Nature Connection (formerly National Smokejumper Center) has a branding issue. The reason is the name needs to be all encompassing of what we do and be able to fit into a niche that is not found at West Yellowstone.

While having a presence on Facebook is fine for now, having our own website means we can make it look the way we want. I wrote on here to find out if others on PP have their own websites or company websites, where they create it themselves?

What Way Do You Make Your Website?

We have the ability to use WordPress. I had used this a long time ago, but much of it has changed. So for those that create their own website, do you use WordPress (WP)?

And if you do use WP, did you pay for a Theme or skin for it, or did you use a free one?

We are considering buying a Theme, and I am trying to figure out the best one out there. Ultimately, I have to go back to my board, and let everyone know what is what, but I am trying to find the best fit for our Nonprofit Organization.

Thank you for your help!

I appreciate everyone who comments on this post. I promise I will come back soon to comment as well.

I have used Wordpress in the past but I use Blogger now because it is so much easier. Good luck with your site.

Thanks for responding. We have Wordpress set up already, so that is why we are using it.

What problem did you have with Wordpress?

Since it is used by so many people, and since it was set up to be used by the last webmaster, I will use it now. I have been researching it quite a bit since I wrote this article, and plan on going with the Thesis theme as well.

Hello Laura-n-Sasha. I am not a fun user of wordpress. I prefer to use blogger same as AngelSharum or either Hitblog or Hubpage but wordpress might also be good since its popular but it takes time to learn to use it.
