    Great video. I’m a luddite but I did start a blog on WordPress and had an inkling that I could probably use WordPress to create a Website, too. Thanks for confirming that. I look forward to more of your videos.

    Thanks for the video. I’ve written a couple of blog articles via WordPress and it is fairly easy to use but I am still getting used to it fully so the more help I can get the better :)
    I work for a small business and so it’s perfect for us – especially because it’s free.
    I have read another article that helped me on my decisions too – it might be useful http://www.lucidica.com/blog/online-marketing/website/top-tips-on-using-wordpress-for-a-small-business-website/
