This course compares and contrasts the differences between the free blogging service offered by Wordpress and a self-hosted blog running Wordpress scripts.
The course is suited to anyone who's interested in blogging, and has heard of Wordpress, but isn't clear whether or not they should sign up for a free account at Wordpress, or use the free scripts from Wordpress to self-host their own blog.
The course covers many differences between the two scenarios, including...
... the differences in how you can monetise your blog
... the different amount of web-space and bandwidth provided
... the different theme and plugin restrictions
... the different domain and sub-domain options
... the email differences
... and much more!

At the end of this course, students will be able to decide whether a free account at Wordpress or a self-hosted blog running Wordpress scripts is the right choice for them.
Please note, this course does not look at the actual process of creating blog posts and pages as this process is very similar for users of both Wordpress and self-hosted blogs.
