In early 2014, I started Myanmar Entrepreneur as a blogspot because my knowledge on website was very little. Since that time till today, I never stop learning. I learn about coding, website, hosting and many others which are all about website and internet. I actually wanted to be able to build own website. But I don’t have much knowledge in coding.
Since then, I was finding which will become a good platform to publish article. Blogspot is just a blog. Blog has default features and services such as SEO and hosting. The problem is you cannot expand it to become a news portal which have lots of categories and features. You can create categories and features, but you don’t have much chance to edit the website as the way you want. Blog doesn’t let you create own html page. Therefore you have to stick with single blog post page style to put all kind of information. Even if you want to put contact us and other profile pages, you have no authority to add customised html page. You will said it’s fine if you are a geek. It depends on theme design you choose. However blog is not a perfect platform to play for a news and media website.
Blogspot has default SEO setting where you can put web page title, meta data description, meta data keyword, etc. However to optimise a webpage, you have to optimise every single page. You don’t have too much option and setting in blogspot and WordPress blog either. So that you have to buy own hosting to host your website. As you have own storage, you can play around on it. Using CMS is the best choice for me now. WordPress is the most popular and most easy to use CMS platform to manage content. I’ve been uploading articles as an author for many websites since 2011. But I only had little knowledge. So now I can do more than what I could in 2011.
Myanmar-Entrepreneur.com is a news and media website which gives news and information all about entrepreneurs and business in Myanmar. I will invite talent entrepreneurs in Myanmar to write and share their knowledge and experiences. By the way, I have iOS app for Myanmar Entrepreneur.
