What are the benefits of using WordPress as a blogging tool?

Answer

WordPress has become a leader as not only a blogging platform, but also a content-management system. It is user-friendly in many ways, allowing even the most technically challenged to maintain a good web presence. Once the core elements have been put in place by someone with the design and development know-how, users can login to a dashboard and maintain the site through features that look and feel like any standard word processing program.
