In this post, I’ll explore the differences between two versions of WordPress: WordPress.com and self hosted WordPress (WordPress.org).

One of the principles of writing for business is to write what your customers want to know. I often draw from my consulting experiences when I’m looking for topics. This particular topic is one of the most frequent questions from clients.

First, let’s explore the two versions’ commonalities. Both are web-based software packages. This means that, unlike an app you download to your computer, like a word processor for example, the WordPress software runs on a web server rather than on your own computer.

The interface is mostly very similar in WordPress.com and WordPress.org. Both versions have the capability to build static pages, and both allow you to create blog posts, which are by default arranged in reverse chronological order. Both make use of the Gutenberg block editor.

Do you repurpose content?

Here’s what I mean by that. Say I write a great blog post (like this one, I hope). If I’m smart, I don’t stop at one great blog post, I create multiple pieces of content from this idea.

If I repurpose content wisely, I can also create a video, an Instagram story, an Instagram multi-image post, a Pinterest post, a podcast episode, an ebook, and, if I’m really feeling ambitious, an infographic. I could also take an old post and update it, adding more timely information and statistics. All from one idea. See how that works?

It’s a bit like buying a tool you can use in multiple ways. My iPad, for example. I invested in a new iPad this year which I use as a teleprompter when I record videos, to preview websites I build on different screen sizes, and to keep up with email and access files when I’m on the go. It’s less cumbersome to carry around than my laptop, so I take it with me most of the time. I also do my crossword puzzles on it, and have been know to play a game or two. Not only does it help with work, it can be an excellent relaxation device. One investment, multiple benefits.

How to Repurpose Content

April 21, 2021 11:19 am

When I get asked by clients how to create web images for their blog or website, I generally point them to Canva, the outstanding web-based freemium image editor. My youngest daughter is a blogger, and I taught her about Canva — she was amazed that her old mom had taught her, a 29-year-old, about a piece of useful technology.

I use Adobe Creative Suite apps Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop to create and edit my images, but these apps are expensive and have a steep learning curve. Canva is an excellent alternative.

Why it Matters

Websites are full of images that help tell your story and illustrate your copy. Web images break up large bits of copy and help attract readers’ eyeballs.

With Google’s increasing emphasis on site speed as a ranking factor it’s not only important to have beautiful, professional images on your site, but it’s a vital part of your site’s design process to optimize the images for fast loading.
Types of Web Images

There two basic types of images: raster and vector.

A raster image is made up of pixels and cannot generally be enlarged significantly. If you try to enlarge a raster image it will become blurry and pixelated. A photograph is an example of a raster image.

Vector images, as described by Adobe, are built by mathematical formulas that establish points on a grid. They can be infinitely resized without losing sharpness or clarity. An example of a vector image is a logo or piece of line art.

Most of the websites I design these days come with a request for an event calendar. It’s an important part of a business or organization’s website and one that can be difficult to implement well.


About a year ago, I found the Modern Events Calendar (MEC) plugin after using other event calendar plugins and found them adequate, but not exactly right for my needs.


I found MEC by accident after I became frustrated with a plugin I’d used before on other sites. A Google search on *alternative to … “ took me to this plugin that, at least for me, is a better solution.


I’m using the free version, which works well for my needs but there is a premium version if you need more functionality.

WordPress Event Calendar Plugin: Modern Events Calendar

March 30, 2021 2:11 pm

If you have read anything about online marketing, you’ve heard about a landing page. But what is a landing page and why do you need one?

Have you ever tried to look very hard at something and you squint to see it better? The reason it works is that when we squint, fewer light rays enter the eye. This is known as the pinhole effect and it works because it prevents unfocused light rays from entering the retina.

What does the pinhole effect have to do with marketing? In the same way you’re filtering out extraneous light rays, a landing page allows you to filter out distractions that may keep a reader from buying your product or service.

A landing page is different from every other page on your website. It has one purpose: to persuade the reader to do what it is you want them to do. That may be buy a product, sign up for your email list, or request more information.

It’s completely focused on what’s called a conversion, which is when the reader follows through on the action you want them to perform.

For example, if you are trying to build an email list, you’ll offer a giveaway of some sort, maybe a guide or cheat sheet. You might run an ad or just have a signup form on your website that mentions your giveaway and contains copy that makes it sound irresistible. When the reader clicks on your ad, they are taken to a special page that is laser focused on your call to action (CTA), which is what you want them to do.

In our email list building example, a conversion would happen when a reader completes the form and confirms (if you have your email list set up for double opt-in) their interest in joining your list.

So we could say a landing page uses the pinhole effect to shut out distractions and focus your reader on the offer and encourage them to take action.

If you want to start blogging, your first step is to decide what kind of blog you want. Whether your blog is strictly creative outlet that allow you to write about whatever you choose or a potential money maker, you’ll be better off in the long run if you start right.

The first step isn’t setting up a blog and dealing with web hosting — it’s deciding what you want to write about. Decide what topics you’ll cover and organize your thoughts around those.

WordPress is an excellent platform on which to build a website. For new users, it’s often scary to make changes to the site for fear of causing a problem. That’s why it’s critical to understand WordPress troubleshooting so you don’t feel the urge to panic when something goes wrong.

Sometimes when something goes wrong, you’ll still have access to the admin area, but there may be times when you don’t, so I’ll cover both situations.

Before we get started, let’s talk about one of the most important parts of maintenance of your site: backups. If you haven’t been backing up your site regularly, this experience will make a believer out of you. If you have, you’ll breathe a sign of relief.

I make changes and post new content frequently on my site, so I have daily backups. That way if something goes horribly wrong, I can easily recover the site. Before you begin troubleshooting, clear your browser cache and/or view your site in a private window.

If you have access to your admin area, you might want to install a maintenance plugin so you’re not showing your errors to the world. You’ll need FTP access and WordPress admin access (in the admin user role).
