One thing I know, my first attempt at building a website was neither fast nor easy. Things have changed a lot since then. Learning all the coding that goes into a website is no longer necessary. WordPress has made website building so simple anyone can do it. Using WordPress I not only learned how to build a website, but how to build one fast because it is so easy. WordPress has become the go to software for a myriad of websites. The video below will quickly demonstrate how to build a website fast and easy with WordPress.

After spending a semester in college studying website design, I was no closer to a beautiful website than I had been when I began. At that time, there was much to learn about all the different aspects of building a website and there were not many inexpensive companies willing to help the beginner, or anyone else, without a great deal of investment. Now, with WordPress, building a website, or many websites is amazingly fast and extremely easy.

Website Building without WordPress


Some WordPress Design Options

In the beginning, someone building a website needed to be a programmer. That meant a degree in computer programming and years of practice in making websites usable. It took many years to perfect the intricacies of the craft. Some knowledge needed includes

  • CSS
  • HTML
  • jQuery
  • JavaScript
  • PHP
  • ASP
  • Bootstrap
  • Photoshop
  • DNS
  • XML
  • FTP

However, in 2003 by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little began construction of an open source platform that would become the most popular website construction entity on the internet. They invented WordPress, developing it from another platform called b2, which they branched to become WordPress.

WordPress introduced a free and complete platform that eliminated the need to learn any of these new languages. Building a website was finally within the grasp of those, like me, who were inept at all those acronyms. Remembering what all those letters represent is difficult enough without having to understand how they work. WordPress has done the difficult part for us.

What is WordPress You Ask

WordPress is the power behind many of the most popular websites on the internet. It is an open source platform for website construction that was developed starting in 2003. WordPress offers a variety of themes to individualize websites, plugins to make things run smoothly, and best of all, you don’t need to be a programmer to use it.

The WordPress themes allow the user to change the look of their website without changing the content. The coding of HTML, PHP, and the rest are taken care of by the WordPress software. If you want to change something, you can. However, if you have no programming experience, you will have a beautiful website just the same. All those pesky programming issues are addressed by the software.

WordPress is an efficient platform offering a variety of customizations, yet it is as tech free as you want it to be. No longer does the writer of a blog need to learn all the inner workings of computer code to build a beautiful home on the web. In addition, it is so easy to set up that you could be the proud owner of your own WordPress website in a few minutes.

Moreover, the WordPress community is behind the product with support. Developers constantly monitor the software and offer assistance to those who wish to improve the product. No longer is the website developer alone in the world trying to make their way. Community support and education to increase the efficiency and adapt to changes in the internet are just two of the areas in which WordPress excels.
