Thanks for the update! I am a big fan of WordPress and all its capability. I like your updated site. Blessings on your ministry!
Thanks for linking to the website for the eastern Montana WELS churches. When I set up the site years ago, joomla was it. Now WordPress has caught up and in my opinion, has the power of Joomla but much easier to handle/learn.
For WordPress & BlogEngine.Net I have used w.bloggar for creating my posts right from my PCs. This is a free blog editing software application that runs on MS Windows PCs. See… http://wbloggar.com/
