Mike Potter of ESC! Technologies starts to dig into the details in the second part of our conversation about using WordPress for publishing your web site. The conversation starts with why the their community is both an important asset and an important factor in choosing WordPress as your web site platform, then covers where to start, the “5-Minute Install” of WordPress ,and the difference between “cheap” and “inexpensive” hosting and how to tell the difference. What is the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org? How easy is it to move your site? What do I look for in a theme, and where do I look? All this in more as our series continues.

Guests:

Michael Potter offers computer consulting of all flavors through his company, ESC! Technologies Group, including building WordPress web sites. Fine him on Twitter as @esctechgroup. He is also the Executive Producer of For Mac Eyes Only, and the organizer of the annual Macstock Conference and Expo. Mike’s love-affair for all things Apple began in his Junior High’s Library playing Lemonade Stand on a pair of brand new Apple ][+ computers. His penchant for Apple gear continued to be nurtured by the public school system when, in High School, he was hired as a lab supervisor to help run the Apple ][e lab for his fellow students and their Print Shop needs. Then, further still, in college he often opted to help a friend with her Computer Graphics coursework instead of focusing on his own studies, but only because it helped get him closer to the Mac-lab.
