Internet Strategist Heidi Cool explains the basics of WordPress as a blogging tool but also as a robust development tool that can be used for business websites.
"WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day."
The open source WordPress can be customized as needed and Heidi also shares a link to resources and examples. Don't miss her Web Development Blog which was " created to share ideas, tips, and advice with those involved in creating, maintaining or developing content for academic, corporate and other Web sites and blogs."
