I am a person interested in writing and reading blogs. I
literally enjoy the aesthetics of blog as well, as and when I crawl across the
blogs. I started noticing that some blogs had really excellent outward
appearance. The idea of beauty seemed to be very different and that is when I
realized that there was something to do with content management system too
(CMS). Certain CMS like Joomla, wordpress, Drupal etc., provide themes that are
quite different and attractive that gives a pleasant look to the blog.
This realization induced me to have a web designer to design
my blog with the help of some CMS. When I consulted a few friends who were
technically vibrant and had experience with creating many blogging sites, they
suggested having my blog designed with Joomla as I am a person loving visual
feel of the blog. On research I realized that Joomla is visual CMS and can be a
good choice for me to apply for my blog.
The next question that hit my thought was whether I myself
can learn Joomla so that I can have even my website designed by myself.
I understood that learning Joomla is not
really an easy job but then it is worthwhile. And there started my journey to
learn Joomla. It was quite tricky but then I fond learning it very interesting
after which I planned to deploy what I learnt in my own blog.
Joomla is a great tool for blogging. After having a Joomla
set up in order to start using it for blogging. I started giving structure to
my blog with the help of sections and categories that helped me to have related
blogs sectioned together and to categorize the blogs I write.
Creating sections with Joomla is just an easy job when I
log-in to the backend administrator.
found a Section Manager option when I hovered over the top navigation and that
helped me to create sections for my blog.
And then I scrolled over to the category manager that served me the
purpose of categorizing my articles.
Good that I made my blog look beautiful but without content
how will my blog be ranked or who will search of my blog? Something that would
keep my visitors stay on my blog is the interesting content. So with Joomla I
started creating articles which are nothing but the post that we make with
usual wordpress or blogs. This piece of content is what is going to appear on
the blog that is going to go live.
Article manager is the option that helped me to do this
task. I was able to add menus and links which aided me in keeping my blog more
So I was done with designing and I entered the last phase of
hosting my blog. Lot more companies I found on net that proclaimed to offer
good service. I found a reliable site for Joomla hosting and that is
Instantappz. Now I see my blog depicting my imagination and I am happy with my
blog. Happy blogging to you too!
