Been blogging using Blogger.com for years, until today when Google identified our new company blog as "a potential spam blog" and before I could find out anything about what was going on or fix anything, they summarily deleted it. Within a couple hours. No specifics about the nature of the issue. Just zap went the finger of the angry god and all our work was gone. I swear this will never happen again.
I need a better experience so I'm over here looking at WordPress.
Frankly, I'm confused. I get a ton of piecemeal info around here about features and benefits and types and capabilities but no decision tree that tells me how to select the WordPress type and installation that will meet my company's needs. I don't want to have to become a WordPress expert by trial and error and arduous study and then, a hundred mistakes and weeks later, find out what I should have done at the start.
I'd like my better experience to begin right away in the form of working the other way around. I'd like some trustable expert to look at my application requirements and tell me from the outset what general direction to go in. Do I need .com or .org considering what we want to do on our blog? And what is the critical path through implementation options to a satisfying and profitable business solution?
I'd like to know this info without signing up for stuff and making a lot of commitments.
How are these novice issues well resolved here in WordPress Land?
Thanks in advance for helping.
