Cara is a budding writer who wants to set up her own website and blog. She has a domain name and set up her website through GoDaddy. Now what? Rich says that doing a WordPress.com blog is probably the best long term. They'll do it all, and all she needs to do is go into the settings and forward her domain name to the blog.
Another option is to do a self hosted WordPress blog for more control. But it would require a lot more work. So Cara should start small with WordPress and just upscale her blog plan when she needs to.
