Many Started Blogging using WordPress

Know what? As of today, this blogging platform has dominated almost 28% of websites on the internet. Based on Content Management System (CMS), close to 60% is powered by WordPress.

That is an enormous achievement since 2003, 13 years ago. And, this platform and its community continue to grow.

No doubt the worth of starting new blog now.

Back in 2009, I didn’t know what’s WordPress or a blog was all about. So, I signed up on and shared a “Hello World! post.

Welcome to This is your first post. Edit or delete it and start blogging!

Guess so, this sentence continues to be the first written-content on that WordPress First Post.

And the next thing a writer realised he’s a BLOGGER the instant a post is PUBLISHED.

From penmanship to typing text on a PC, plus mouse clicking.

Not a single line of programming codes needed!

Sounds brilliant!
