WordPress is the best platform for bloggers who want to have complete control over their websites. It’s an open source platform 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 must have a self-hosted WordPress.org site, as most brands won’t work with a blogger using a platform, such as 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 comes the requirement for some level of coding knowledge, or the ability to follow a technical tutorial. This is because WordPress operates 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 the time to learn, you can find a developer or designer on UpWork or Fiverr to help you out. Some web hosts provide WordPress help, depending on the plan level you pay for.
Who should use it:
WordPress is best for bloggers who want complete control over their website, want to customize it heavily and are comfortable using code.
