WordPress can be one of the easiest tools to use for a blogger. With the help of WordPress, you can create a custom website in a matter of minutes. You will be able to easily change your website’s design, write blog posts, perform updates, integrate social media and sharing options, gain subscribers and more.
As a blogging platform, WordPress offers a variety of themes and plugins to enhance your publishing experience. WordPress users can further enhance their experience with Markdown, a markup language similar to HTML but simpler and easier to write (and read).

Even a site with minimal traffic may be hacked and infected with malware. A few simple security measures can help ensure that your site stays clean, safe and malware-free.
