So I have experience with SEO, not an expert by any means. I've done all my keyword research.. Already have my first domain. Never actually started a site or blog on my own, only worked on projects with friends that were already built when I started. Itching to start something for myself. Within the next few days I'll be committing to a blogging platform and host for the first time. At first I was pretty convinced I was going to be using Blogger, was told Blogger has its advantages because it's easy to set up Adsense, and is run by Google. I set up the basics of a Blogger, just was going to start throwing my articles on it when I started browsing the BH forum. Now I'm reading that I should definitely be using Wordpress for its SEO advantages (themes and plugins), and I need to make up my mind before I commit and start working. Also am like 85% sure I'm going to go with Hostwinds, again, never hosted anything in my life so it feels like a bit of trial and error but I hear good things about them. Basically what I want to know is if Wordpress is going to be worth me learning and how newb friendly it is. If it's actually going to make a difference with SEO and ranking. Any other comments/help would be great.
