WordPress is the best platform for bloggers who want full control over their websites. It is an open source platform that you can use to create a website or blog for free using WordPress.org, or you can pay for a hosted WordPress.com site. If you want to make money as a traditional blogger, you need to have a self-hosted WordPress.org site because most brands won’t work with a blogger using a platform, like Wix or Squarespace.
WordPress is also a very popular platform, so there are thousands of resources available online to help you set up and use your blog. With its endless customization options, some level of coding knowledge or the ability to follow a technical tutorial is required. This is because WordPress runs on a codebase that you can manipulate to make your blog look and work the way you want.
If you’re not comfortable editing code or don’t have time to learn, you can find a developer or designer on UpWork or Fiverr to help you out. Some web hosts provide WordPress support, depending on the level of plan you pay for.
Who should use it:
WordPress is great for bloggers who want full control over their website, want to customize it heavily, and are comfortable with code.
