Why I recommend WordPress as a blogging platform?

Now that we agreed on why you should use WordPress as a blog platform, you will need to do other steps like:

–    Register a domain name and set up your hosting server.
–    Install WordPress CMS on it and most hosting companies provide a 1 click setup process. And smarterasp.net is one of these hosting providers.

–    Use a page builder so that you do not need a lot of coding to create your blog. And I use the “Elementor Pro” page builder it is the paid version of the free plugin “Elementor” but with more capabilities.
–    Work on the Logo and Navigation Menu.
–    Responsive WordPress Blog Website Design, where 80% of the web users are browsing the internet using their mobiles and this is auto-generated with Elementor plugin.
