WordPress is the platform that I use on this blog. For a lot of reasons. First is because is user friendly and second because is very customizable even if the IT skills are low. Also a lot of themes are built every day. A site to visit is of course wordpress.org. There you can find the latest versions of wordpress. You will need some basic preparation to download and install awordpress blog. In the Downloads directory of this site you can dowload also the versions 2.5 and 2.7. I’ve left also the 2.5 version because some users prefer this one and not the last.
You can view also the other comments as Plugins and Themes. It is just an alternative for some tools that I use and I found useful.
Another site you should visit is wordpress.com. If you intend to test this platform this is the right way. Setup a free blog
on the Multi User platform and Happy Blogging. The setup procedure does not need any technical skills and is fast. When will have some post will have discovered if is what you expected.
