Get started with WordPress™ to create a blog, sell products or do any other activity on the Internet in the lowest-cost ways possible. You want to “fail-fast” as cheaply as possible since it is difficult to predict before-hand the money-makers. As you prove your business model to generate income, migrate to more effective (though often more costly) services and software to save you time or offer your users a better web experience. This will typically involve professional WordPress site designer/developers that will have their own preferences for hosting providers, themes and plugins; listen to them since their job is to enhance your money-makers.
This site is all about cheap, cost-effective do-it-yourself ways to get started with WordPress knowing you will want to scale the money-makers (likely using professionals site designers/developers) and drop the losers.
