What blogging platform should I use?

Question by Jack Francis: What blogging platform should I use?
I am starting a travel blog and am very confused about what blogging platform to use.

I want it to be a professional blog and want to have my own domain name. However, I have very limited (almost non existent) skills when it comes to web design.

I will be reviewing certain things in the blog and want room to expand in the future should the blog take off.

It needs to be easy for me to add text, photos and embedded video diaries to the blog…

Any ideas??

Jack,

I’d say WordPress is the best blogging platform you can go for. It has very active development and there are tons of free/paid themes (web design) that you can use. Two paid example are:

http://www.woothemes.com/demo/?name=aperture

http://www.woothemes.com/demo/?name=object

That was just for an idea. You can find equally good looking free themes if you spend some time. Oh, and by the way, you wouldn’t need much (or any) coding/designing skills for using these kind of themes. Just clicking around can do most of the job.

You can definitely get your own domain name. You have to get a web hosting plan too. Check this out: http://hosting4beginners.webnode.com/how-to-host-a-website/
It has step by step guides to help you get your domain name, web hosting plan and setting up your website.

I don’t understand what you meant by ‘room to expand’. If you meant that you’d want to be able to have a large number of visitors or a large website, both should be easy. When you reach that situation you might want to upgrade your web hosting plan to a better one (would obviously cost more than the initial period but not a whole lot more and you’d have those additional features.)

“It needs to be easy for me to add text, photos and embedded video diaries to the blog…”. All this will be very easy for you to do with WordPress. I use it too.

“Any ideas??”
Sure. They are up there :)

All the best.

Is there a blogging platform that allows HTML control on posts?

Question by Dickson W: Is there a blogging platform that allows HTML control on posts?
I’m designing a blog, but I want to have customization on posts. In other words, each post’s format and design is completely different. I want to have full HTML control on my posts. Is there a blogging platform that will allow me to do that?

What is the best blogging platform to use for a ‘tutoring’ site?

Question by blkobswg: What is the best blogging platform to use for a ‘tutoring’ site?
I’m working on starting a tutor series for Math. I’ll be using YouTube to upload videos, but I’d like a blogging platform or CMS to upload written explanations, include youtube videos along with written articles, and be able to customize the theme.

I’m curious as to what you recommend I look into using.

I’m a php developer so I can work most out to do what I want, but I’d rather not have to do this from scratch.

Services such as WordPress and Blogger are a no go for me. WordPress is a Pain to use and Blogger categorises by date not by information. Maybe a platform similar to entrepreneur.com???

Any input is appreciated!
I like the idea behind moodle. But I’m not feeling the coursework associated with it.

Well tumblr.com or wordpress.com are really good for blogging but for tutoring you might want to use wordpress.com
