WordPress is the most versatile blogging platform available, and it is free. The beginner will find it so incredibly user friendly that you will do all of your blogs in this blogging software. I have tried several different blogging programs, and have come back to WordPress because there is so much you can do with it.
What is so nice about WordPress is that it is so easy to do what you want to do – that is blog. There is nothing worse than fighting with a script when all you want to do is blog. The reason that it is such a popular blogging platform, is that it so easy to get up and running. You can make your first blog post within minutes of setting up the program.
Another reason that this program is so popular is that there are so many templates or themes available for program. You will not have to be an expert in graphics to change the theme to your blog. There is even a software program called "WordPress ThemeGen" available that will generate a theme for you. You provide the image and it will generate the header and other necessary files.
While it is the most used blogging format on the internet there is an incredible amount of information on WordPress on the internet. There are articles galore, videos on YouTube, forums, etc available when you are searching for plugins to tie into your blog. Or maybe you are looking for a solution to a technical problem, there is a vast amount of resources available to solver your problem.
