Article Sites Using Wordpress

Wordpress has always been a place which seems complicated to me. I realize it's the choice of most bloggers and it has more capabilities than Blogger, but to me it just seems unfriendly. Maybe it's because I'm not much of a web designer, nor a technological savvy person.

When it comes to article writing sites that use Wordpress: I just stay away naturally. I'm thinking of Daily Two Cents and Newsvines. When they use the Wordpress template to write the articles it takes a long time to write and the browser gets slowed down. Then there are all these checks and things to fill out to make it work properly. Isn't this asking a little too much for some people who just want to write and not learn how to operate Wordpress. I mean is it mandatory for writers to know how to work Wordpress?

Posting to Daily Two Cents and Writedge were certainly a pain. I much prefer posting here for my short articles.

DTC was a nightmare with requirements regarding tags, meta descriptions etc. I prefer teh simplicity of Persona Paper.

I have a few websites using wordpress.org (NOT wordpress.com) Use of the .org site requires you to have your own domain name and hosting. Once you are used to that, it's easy. I run a blog for my sister. She writes on Facebook and I copy her words, add pictures from Pixabay and publish it. Finding the pictures takes the longest. If I only posted the words, it takes 5 minutes, tops. I have never used DTC. I thought Newsvine was just a quick blof type site? Maybe it has changed.
