    Just wondering why a tech and internet company would have they’re word press blog on wordpress.com. It is quick and easy to setup, It literally takes me 5 minutes to set up a new blog with theme and basic plugins on my LAMP server. You could also alias wordpress.cstechplus.com to the wordpress subdomain if you want to keep the wordpress.com cloud thing going. would make it look a little more professional.

    • Thanks for the feedback Joe. Our blog is a work in progress and will continue to evolve. Starting off, I wanted it to be simple in nature to show our customers how easy it is to setup a blog. We do plan on enhancing it as time goes on. Hope you will continue to read our posts and follow our progress in 2012. Happy Holidays!
