  1. Hey are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and
    create my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      I do use WordPress and it is very easy. Definitely don’t have to know coding – that is all done for you. You just have to type – or cut and paste – your words, and you can add media pretty easily. You can prepare blog entries ahead of time, and schedule them to be published whenever you want, and you can always go back and tweak or correct or add. I just use a basic format, but if you play around you can change the appearance. I like to look at the Freshly Pressed blogs for inspiration, and also just to read interesting blogs. Have fun!
