I had initially decided to use XSitePro for my new site but after beginning to read “How to Build An Affiliate Website with WordPress” I’m reconsidering that decision. After all, there are a lot of advantages to using WordPress for any site – – from RSS to built in commenting abilities, to the myriad of plug-ins that could make life and expansion much easier. Templating WordPress, though, is harder for me than making a template for XSitePro, and it’s harder for me to wrap my head around the changes that’ll need to be made to a default WordPress theme to make it work for what I’ve got planned.
So, I’m going to take tonight to study the WP Affiliate book, along with the free “WordPress SEO for Beginners” from Blog Oh Blog and Teli Adlam’s free “Beginner’s Guide to Using and Building Traffic with Feedburner” report.
If I feel confident and enthusiastic enough to proceed with WordPress tomorrow, I’ll set up a blog and see where it leads. Otherwise, I’ll go back to my XSitePro plan and save WordPress for a future project.
