Why WordPress

September 2, 2006

Why I chose to use WordPress.com:

The Usual Features:

  • Comments
  • Categories
  • Trackbacks
  • RSS
  • Moderation
  • Image Uploading

The Specific Details:

  • Search – If this is to become a running log of my ideas, I need the ability to search it.
  • Non-Blog Pages – I don’t want to have more than one location on the web to maintain, so I need the ability to present non-journal content.
  • Comment Notification – It would be nice to respond to visitors comments (in a timely manner).
  • Captchas – I would have liked to have this feature to (more) safely allow anonymous commenting.
  • File Upload – I will only be able to upload limited files.
