Web Host Options

Looking for a Web host?

You have a few options. For a Web site and WordPress.org blog combo,  I suggest Network Solutions. If you want just a WordPress.org blog, they can host it without the Web site. In this case the blog will be your Web site, and you’ll pay less money for this option.

If you want a free blog, try WordPress.com or Blogger.com. You don’t need a web host for WordPress.com or Blogger (owned by Google). I find Blogger easier to use than WordPress. For you ladies out there, check out Blog Her, whose mission is “to create opportunities for women who blog to gain exposure, education, community and economic empowerment.” (http://www.blogher.com/our-vision)

Hope this helps!

Looking for combo WordPress theme and Web site theme

Still in the process of building my Web site. I have tried using many of the Network Solution themes, but they just don’t seem to work for me. I feel I can create the Web site quicker using a program like Kompozer. (I wish I knew more about Dreamweaver!) Part of my dilemma is that I want my blog to blend with my Web site. I’ve played around with some of the WordPress themes, but haven’t found one I like yet.

I wish I could find a template package that includes a matching Web site/WordPress theme. I’ve read tutorials on how to create a WP theme from a Web page, so I would think a package like this would be available somewhere. If NS is offering a Web site/WP hosting package, why don’t they off a template package as well?

I really like how Lisa created her Web site (http://www.2createawebsite.com/index.html) and blog (http://blog.2createawebsite.com/create-a-website/) to match so well.

Any suggestions?
