Nice write up (in hebrew) in the top israeli newspaper Haaretz on why WordPress is the best choice for blogging.
They walk you through the basics of what it takes to setup ( self install from WordPress.org ) including MySQL requirements, getting an ftp client, and making the config file changes. Next week they plan to cover plugins. Good stuff ! (Thanks to my buddy Nimmy for letting me know).
We’ve seen lots of great activity in Israel around WordPress, including a very successful WordCamp Israel held a few weeks ago.
