Introduction: What is WordPress?
WordPress is a CMS that anyone can install and use. It’s super easy to use and can be installed in a web server like Apache or Nginx. These two servers are really popular among blogging platforms.
It has many features that make it easy to use, including a user-friendly admin panel, multiple themes, and plugins. WordPress powers more than 60 million websites all over the world and it’s been translated into over 100 languages.
In this post, we will go through some of the basics of WordPress for beginners so you can get started posting your cannabis blog with WordPress!
What’s the difference between a personal blog and a business blog?
A personal blog is a type of blog that is written by an individual who may or may not have any connection to the company that they are blogging about. A business blog, on the other hand, is a type of blog that is created by a company and written by employees for the purpose of promoting their products or services.
Personal blogs can provide you with an outlet for your creativity and allow you to share your thoughts with others. It is always smart to invest in your online presence by building strong working relationships with other companies. Business blogs can be a good way to connect with potential customers or suppliers.
Business blogs are typically more formal than personal blogs and are usually written in order to promote or market something. The good news is both can be a lot of fun, especially when they are able to communicate in ways you need them to!
