WordPress is among the most popular and powerful publishing platforms available for bloggers as well as companies wanting to make maximum advantage of their online presence. It’s free, and users don’t need to write code to use it.
Recently, with the release of version 3.0, WordPress has moved to help manage and power sites that belong to big, household names, including major brands, country music stars and professional athletes. WordPress powers more than 70 million websites, half of which are hosted on wordpress.com.
