Using WordPress Is So Easy But...

I started WisdomOfSeneca.com on the WordPress platform recently, as I was reading more on Seneca The Younger's teachings on stoism, and I want to dive a little deeper into that space without further cluttering this website.

And since I will publish books on Amazon anyway, I decided to use a simple way of hosting those content, which is with a self-hosted WordPress, since I already have a Bluehost Webhosting account anyway.

A quick glimpse of Wisdom Of Seneca

I chose a very simple design, black and white, with single right-aligned side bar, and then mapped out the layout that I wanted.

It will be a static home page, with another page for blog posts, and another page for quotes etc.

It was so easy to use, and I can imagine and understand why self-hosted WordPress is so popular today (about 25% of private websites uses WordPress).

yet for my major authority sites, i still will use solo build it

It's a not negotiable option for me, especially for website businesses that I have plans to grow bigger such as:

Where I am relying on search engine traffic (basically free traffic).

To me, it's because it's a tried and tested approach, and if it works, it just works.

I wrote an earlier article comparing self-hosted WordPress versus Solo Build It which I think is a good reference if you're in that particular dilemma.
