Throughout the world, from beginners to experts, most of us blog with WordPress, which is a very user-friendly blogging application to use. It is popular among beginners as well as among the experts. What about you? Have you used WordPress yet to implement your blogging skills? If not, then you should discover its fantastic features.

Easy Operation, Maintenance, and Installation

WordPress is very easy to setup for your own blog site and it is also offered in Easyapps (one click installation scripts). It is only one button installation click and it will be ready in seconds. But if you don’t have your own web hosting account, your can get your own WordPress blog at http://www.wordpress.com/. Blog maintenance is also easy as it is not done everyday and required only when there’s any update from WordPress. The upgrade process is easy and can be automated with several plugins.

Dozens of Gorgeous Themes

For those fancying on fabulous appearance, WordPress offers you with so many themes you can choose. You can change the look of your blog with any attractive themes ranging from simple, sweet, fun, even to crazy or professional one. And those themes can be instantly switched whenever you feel like it with just a button click. You can also customize your sidebar using widgets and there are some themes that let you upload your own photo or image for the header bar. If you’re an expert of CSS, you are able to customize your own CSS codes.

Pages, Archive, and Categories Creation

Additionally, WordPress has a feature that enables you to easily create pages you want. You can possibly add an “about me” page where you can fill with your own information (biography). After you create, there will be a link to that page automatically added to your sidebar. Not only “about me” page, you can even create the whole websites using WordPress. Create your own custom home page and then your blog pages as one of the sub-pages.

There is also archive for your blogs too. The archive is divided per month when you write your blogs. Let’s say for example you write in December 2008, January, February 2009, etc; then there will be archive listed  at your side bar as December 2008, January 2009, February 2009, and so on. It will help you to find your blog title easier per month.

Or, you can create categories per your blog topics so they will look neater and your readers can find the topics they would like to read much easier. You can choose any possible categories like computer, personal, education, love, etc. The categories will be automatically added to your side bar too where the readers can see and click them.

Well, as far as I’ve experienced myself, blogging is the best thing to express your ideas, opinions, and feelings. People can discuss it too with you in the blog comments. It is relaxing, relieving, and nice thing to do. And it can be realized with fun by using WordPress. So, let’s blog with WordPress now!
