Wordpress gets lots of bad press and I can understand a lot of it.
But I was recently asked by a friend what he should use if he wanted to start a personal blog.
He has no coding knowledge and no interest in learning to code. So this rules out rolling your own.
All I could think of was Wordpress, he registered a domain, installed Wordpress via a 1-Click installation and was up and running with his first post published online within an hour or so.
What would you have suggested if asked the same question?
