Long Buckby & Brington Baptist Church have a website but I added a WordPress.com blog, using the Sequential theme, to display the photographs taken by myself and other church members and visitors.
WordPress is a good way to organise galleries of photographs because of its ability to add categories and tags. For example, we’ve been able to include a link to the Sunday mornings tag: buckbybaptistphotos.wordpress.com/tag/sunday-mornings/ on the main church website so that people who are thinking of coming along to a Sunday service can get an idea of what to expect.
I chose to use WordPress.com, rather than self-hosted WordPress, because much of the church’s work is carried out by volunteers and I can’t be sure that there will always be someone happy to maintain it. In years to come, if I’m no longer involved with the church, then the site can be taken over by someone else and it will not disappear due to the hosting having lapsed.
I felt that, in this case, it was worth using WordPress.com in spite of its limitations. See my article “Self-hosted WordPress Versus WordPress.com“ for more information.
