As Free As You Make It
I love building WordPress websites and don't have the budget to buy premium plugins and themes most of the time. This is my attempt to show folks how they can build a WordPress website for mostly free. Now, when I say "mostly free" that should clue you in that it is not completely free. You may find that the free version of a plugin or theme doesn't meet your needs and you need to upgrade to the premium version. Oh, and don't forget hosting and domain registration... so, mostly free.
Get it on!
