You gotta love Synchronicity!!!
So I was emailing my LinkedIn buddy, uberpreneur Braun Minchner, and we were both talking about how we like these blogsites that look and act like websites. And as incredibly talented and adept as we both are, neither of us really knows how to create them.
Later that day I hooked up, via twitter, with the Facebook Doyen, Mari Smith – who has a fantabulous blogsite (www.marismith.com) And I once again got blogsite envy.
And then I found an email in my spam filter from another uberpreneur, Kevin Houchin (Esq.) Just so happens he is a WordPress expert. What is WordPress you might ask? (Well, I did) It’s a blogging application that allows you to create – you guessed it – website like blogsites.
Ah, but it doesn’t end there. Several hours later I receive an email from another friend asking me if I knew about this new trend, and more importantly, did I think I could create a site for her.
It usually only takes three messages from the universe to spur me into action – with four – it’s a MUST DO!
Kevin E. Houchin is an attorney, artist, teacher, author, and principal of Houchin & Associates, P.C. , a copyright, trademark, arts & entertainment, business development, and branding firm located in Fort Collins, Colorado

What is WordPress?
WordPress is the most-used blog tool in its category. Originally, a traditional blogging application, WordPress wanted to experience to a larger audience. So they created WordPress.com, a hosted version of the open source package where you can start a blog in seconds without any technical knowledge. The cool thing about WordPress – customizable templates!!!!
Almost everything on WordPress.com is free, and things that are currently free will remain free in the future, but they do offer paid a la carte upgrades for things like CSS editing and custom domains.
Go to http://www.wordpress.com today and open your account – then let the games begin!
Hope to see you there! If not, we will also be having a class on December 4th and possible the 18th too!
