Starting a Personal Website or Blog

Visit LazyAndStupid.com for more info and to see my other videos.

Have you ever thought about getting off your lazy ass and starting your own website or blog? It's a lot easier than you might think, and in the episode of Lazy and Stupid, I discuss some of the different platforms and tools you'll need to get started. I'll also give you an introduction to WordPress, which is the Content Management System (CMS) that I use to maintain my website, by taking you behind the scenes at lazyandstupid.com.
