Many sites allow you to create a free website or a blog without writing a single line of coding. However, WordPress stands out due to an easy user interface, feature-loaded framework, a vast community of developers, and search engine friendly pages. This article acts as a guide to help you get started with your first blog or a website.

WordPress is equipped with various powerful features. You need to invest some time and explore them. I advise you to take one step at a time to avoid confusion. Start with writing your first post about your favorite topic and share it on social media. With time, you can improve the design, add new pages, and include more features.
