You can have your blogging site published within a very short time and post to your blog on day one. Your site can have slideshows, videos, you name it and WordPress seems to have a blog add on for it.
They have added several SEO add ons and I find that a necessary addition. They’ve now made it even easier to make money blogging by adding a WordPress shopping cart to your blog.
They have developed several different blog add ons to choose from so that if one seems to clash with something you already have installed you can try something different until you find the blog add on that works for you and doesn’t interfere with your other add ons.

Take a little time before you set up your blogging site to determine your objectives and install the blog add ons that will help you reach your objectives.
