Nowadays, almost everyone has an online blog, a place on the Internet to write and share information about interests, hobbies, topics, and news. But how does one go about starting and setting up a blog of their own? And how does one grow a blog into a full-fledged website?

WordPress is by far the most popular tool used by bloggers and website owners today. Millions of websites are powered with WordPress, from small businesses and independent bloggers to churches and nonprofits. Technically speaking, WordPress is a very powerful Content Management System, or “CMS”, written in a popular computer language called PHP. One of the beauties of WordPress is that you don’t have to be all that tech-savvy to get started with it, but at some point you’re probably going to want to know more.
