Using WordPress to create a blog
WordPress is a market leader among open-source content management systems. It is hugely popular as it is easy to use, highly customisable, and offers high-quality services to improve SEO ranking. Around 25% of websites on the internet are built using this system.
WordPress is a full application you can use to publish your content online with ease. Since it's so simple to use, you can modify your website's content via a control panel, without needing any technical knowledge.
