Simple and easy to maintain
It really is simple and straightforward to get going and start blogging. Anyone, and I really do mean anyone can do it, once you pick up some basics titbits you can build on your blog, and go out and fully market your site, either do a little research and set it up from scratch and get rolling, or heaven forbid find a web hosting provider that has WordPress setup as one of its hosting packages and off you go!
