If you are looking to build a website yourself you need to use a Content Management System or (CMS) to make your life easier. This way you don’t have to worry about coding and html.

One of the most important factors for a CMS product that is promoted toward bloggers is that is simple to use and WordPress has to be one of the most intuitive.

Some of the biggest companies in the world use WordPress as the backbone of their corporate web presence.
