How to Turn Wordpress into an Online Store

April 11th, 2009

We have just come across something we love and recommend: Market Theme for Wordpress – it basically turns your Wordpress blog into an online store. As we said in our popular post, Wordpress: Making Other Websites Obsolete, the free open-source Wordpress  “is making other website-building options, or the need for those options, nearly obsolete… With the right themes and the necessary plug-ins and widgets, your “blog” can look like, and operate as, just about any kind of site.” And here is a perfect, usable example. One of our team members has been planning on building an online store. He has looked into many options, including Yahoo Stores and Amazon Services. Both are good, but our buddy has already been using Wordpress — he knows it, he loves it, so why change. Also, instead of paying the monthly Yahoo and Amazon fees, you download the Market Theme for a one-time license fee of $55 (or a $150 fee for a developer license).

So if you already use Wordpress, this is a no-brainer. If you haven’t tried Wordpress before, we highly recommend you start, for just about all your internet entrepreneurial needs.

Wordpress: Making Other Websites Obsolete

April 1st, 2009

Ok, this might still be an opinion at the moment, but we are beginning to think that Wordpress, the free open-source blog program, is making other website-building options, or the need for those options, nearly obsolete. First of all, as you may already know from previous posts, we consider Wordpress to be the best blogging software. It’s not that the others are bad; some have advantages that Wordpress does not. But with Wordpress — and its endless supply of themes, plug-ins, and widgets — you can pretty-much do anything: it’s not your dad’s blog anymore. With the right themes and the necessary plug-ins and widgets, your “blog” can look like, and operate as, just about any kind of site. Wordpress is part of the so-called Web 2.0 world we recently referred to here – the user-generated software is always evolving and improving.

Death Penalty for Bloggers

March 25th, 2009

If you’re one of the estimated 45,000+ bloggers in Iran, be careful — that wacky country  is contemplating imposing the death penalty on bloggers who violate “Islamic law” — that is, for writing about activities such as adultery, homosexual behavior, or drug use. While the world races into the internet age, some people seem determined to race back into the middle ages. Anybody wanna register a dot.IR domain?
