http://www.alekstanojevic.com/choosing-wordpress-platform/ Choosing a WordPress Platform is the 5th video from the "Create Your First Blog With Alek" video series.

Choosing a WordPress platform is one of the most important steps you need to do in order to start creating your first blog. In this video you will discover what are the two most used WordPress blog platforms, and how to decide which one is the best for your needs.

Now that you know which WordPress platform is the best option for your blog, I have two questions for you:

1. Do you like the idea of making money online blogging about something that you are passionate or knowledgeable about?

2. Would you like to learn how to start earning the income you deserve from the comfort of your home?

If you do, I invite you to visit my blog at:

If you are like me and dream about being your own boss and working from the comfort of your home this is where you will find some very interesting information about one business opportunity I'm involved in, and why this day could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship and partnership.

If you learned something new about choosing a WordPress platform, please like and share it so someone else can benefit from it, or subscribe to this channel in order to be informed about new videos.
