WordPress' plugin architecture allows users to extend the features and functionality of a website or blog. As of March 2017, WordPress has over 55,286 plugins available, each of which offers custom functions and features enabling users to tailor their sites to their specific needs. These customizations range from search engine optimization, to client portals used to display private information to logged in users, to content management systems, to content displaying features, such as the addition of widgets and navigation bars. Not all available plugins are always abreast with the upgrades and as a result they may not function properly or may not function at all. Most plugins are available through WordPress themselves, either via downloading them and installing the files manually via FTP or through the WordPress dashboard. However, many third parties offer plugins through their own websites, many of which are paid packages.

I’ve read a great deal (most from you, but others too) and one thing (I think) that I want to do is divide my site into two or three parts with distinctly different content (i.e. blog, autobiographical anecdotes, literary letters to my heirs, etc.) First I guess — is this a good idea or a really bad one? Second, how do I do that on one site or should I try to juggle multiples? Thanks!

Hey there. So I just started a blog a few days ago with WordPress and have made a few posts already. I chose the free option just to get a feel for everything, but now I’m wanting to update to the premium plan as the free plan only allots 3GB of storage space, which you mentioned here. Unfortunatley, i just came across your website this morning as i was just searching for some blog tips, but my question is, what’s really the purpose of using a webhost with WordPress? The blog i created a few days ago is being hosted by WordPress, correct? Or am I missig something?

Thank you for all the info! This site is exactly what I have been looking for to help start my Blog or website. Ultimately, I would like to monetize my site but I’m not sure if I should start with a Blog or Website first. My understanding is all Blogs are websites but not all websites are Blogs. I assume if I follow your set up steps for a Blog, I can start with that and add or link the other when and if necessary? For the most flexibility and opportunity would you start with a Blog or a website or both simultaneously? My ideas involve home design, and decorating.
