How to Make a Blog on WordPress using Network Solutions

WP_logo1- Buy a domain name (like
2- Buy a hosting account on Network Solutions
3- Install WordPress out of the “Tools” panel in your account manager area
4- Login and post, but don’t expect it to work the same each time, and always expect some new useless (?) upgrade from WordPress at random times.

Network Solutions now allows you to buy a WordPress hosting package, without shared hosting or the high end virtual server, for something like $4.00 US. If you just want WordPress on a nice stable platform, this could be a good solution. If I were going to add WP to a commerce site that already exists I would seriously consider this option.

If you want to have “making websites” listed as one of your hobbies, or if you find yourself with this as your hobby regardless of wanting to list it or not… Network Solutions might be a hosting provider you should look into.

While I realize that no one actually reads my blog anyway, that it is far more of a journal than anything else, I may continue to take the 1st person POV just in case I die in a car accident and someone looks this up. Internet archaeology is going to be big in the future. I want to be a part of that.

Anyway, I’ve been hosting this blog and a couple other sites on NS for quite a while, and I am actually HAPPY with their service. Which, in the internet service provider business, says a lot. Of course, I am merely a hobbyist. If I were doing this professionally, my opinion might be different.

Maybe I’ll change the name of this blog to “Internet Hobbyist”. OR maybe I’ll just crack open another blog for that purpose.

PS- What the hell are these pictures Zemanta is delivering? I think their software is great, but the picture thing has a way to go.

PPS- Oh, I get it. I wrote “car accident”.
