Hiya Folks and @kevinhaszard
I manage several Wordpress blogs for clients and it is a great platform. I enjoy using it and recommend it for some clients as well, depending on the situation.
Wordpress has limitations which, at some point you’ll find you cannot work around. Work arounds are OK, when you know Wordpress in and out. Most folks don’t know it “in and out” though. So, when that point comes to a head, you’d be outsourcing anyhowsen to get what you need out of Wordpress.
If one location online suites your business needs and you know enough about SEO that you feel you can make it go, go with Wordpress. It is the strongest blogging platform out there with pretty good support too.
See, each business and business owner is unique. So the need changes with each client (or business owner) as to: #1 – how to project yourself and your business professionally.#2 – how to bring the public to your services online.#3 – how to socialize online as a means of business projection.
There are more factors, but one main one you’ll find also is that Wordpress is looked at (from the outside) as blogging software whereas a website is your great big ol’ business card (and extended AD, if you will). It should remain somewhat separate.
Some people are successful in getting their Wordpress blog into directories and have it viewed as a website entity but most are not successful with that, at all. Most people who want to use a Wordpress blog as their flagship website wind up outsourcing to get the results they want.
At this point, you could flip a coin and get what you want. But, if you think it through, depending on the amount of business you want to bring in, you’ll figure it out without all this noise.
Start out with Wordpress, if that will suite you and your business needs. Only YOU know that, Kevin.
Up to .04 now, heh.
