Immediately WordPress was installed because it’s usually quick and painless to set up. Went with the out-of-the-box variety WP theme called "Twenty Seventeen", which stayed in tact as a placeholder until June, 2020.

I switched the theme to a Genesis theme called “Magazine Pro” by Studiopress which is now owned by the WPengine hosting company. The magazine style is a much better look for ongoing blogging and is easy to work with along side of Woocommerce which will be installed later so that merchandise can be sold here.
