WordPress is one of the most popular open source blogging systems available, with global and vibrant user, developer, and support communities. Though it can be Moveable Type, Google’s Blogger, and the Apache Roller project as a user-generated content workhorse, WordPress distinguishes itself with a broad array of hosting options, functional extensions (plugins), and aesthetic designs and elements (themes).
With the rise of self-publishing, low-cost web hosting and freely available core components
like the MySQL database, blogging software followed the same trend as most other digital
technologies, moving from high-end, high-cost products to widely available, low-cost consumer
or “hobbyist” systems. WordPress isn’t simply about creating a blog so that you can have a digital diary attached to yourvvanity url
