TypePad is a blogging service created by Six Part Ltd in 2003 and is used world wide by numerous countries. TypePad is based on Six Apart’s type of  platform, it shares technology with Movable Type such as templates and APIs, but is marketed to non-technical users and includes additional features like multiple author support, photo albums and moblogging. TypePad is also currently used by many large organizations and media companies to host their weblog, such as ABC, MSNBC, the CBC, the BBC and Sky News.

Pros:

  • Blogging is simple
  • Easy to find blogs
  • No advertisement
  • Hundreds of themes
  • Choice of using free blogs or professional blogs
  • Blog can be posted on iphones and Facebook

Cons:

  • Need to pay for pro

Even if you need to pay for TypePad Pro, I think that TypePad offers more professional designed themes, control over your content, and ways to make money.  I think that I would choose to use TypePad instead of Blogger or WordPress because it provides thousand of themes, allows you to add javascript, allows you to build a connection between twitter and facebook, and provides you more tools/services.

There is a chart of the comparisons between TypePad, Blogger and WordPress: http://www.typepad.com/about/typepad-vs-wordpress-vs-blogger.html

How to add a theme on WordPress

January 12, 2010 Leave a comment

WordPress has a good amount of blogs they provide to their bloggers, which allow the bloggers to peronalize their theme/setting. Each themes design are diferent, some may have two columns, colours and headers. Also the themes allow bloggers to add widgets, which allow the bloggers to add calenders, link, tags, catergories and others.

Basically what you do to add or change a theme is first go to the settings. When clicked there should be  a page which allows you to add post on the left, there is a sidebar. Find appearance, then theme, which will send you to a page with numerous choices of themes. Choose which theme you choose to use, you may preview it and to change theme press activate.
