What is WordPress About?

WordPress is a charitable organization that started in 2003 with just a small group of people. Now it has grown to be the largest blogging tool in the world. It is an Open Source project, which means there are hundreds of people all over the world working on it. It also means you are free to use it for anything from your own personal niche to a Fortune 500 web site without paying a cent.



  • Real easy to use / user friendly.
  • Tablet accessible. WordPress for iOS is an app that allows you to write posts, upload photos, edit pages, and manage comments on your blog from your iPhone or iPad. As for Android, it allows you to write new posts for your blog, edit content, and manage comments with built-in notifications.

CONS: Haven’t had any yet.

Who is WordPress For?

WordPress is for beginners, intermediate users, and advanced. You have the freedom to run the program, for any purpose you want.

Help for Beginners: Would you like someone to walk you through the whole thing? If you are serious about building your own website I strongly recommend you go to Wealthy Affiliate,  we walk you through and train you how to optimize your website. It’s also free to join.

  1. I love to read about websites promoting wealthy affiliate. It reminds me of the first time that I heard of it. I was going through a rough time trying to figure out which is the right online marketing site that I should choose without getting ripped off. After a considerable amount of time of time being indecisive, I went to my pinterest page to do some pinning when I came across this Wealthy Affiliate pin. I read about it then realized that it was exactly what I was looking for and more. What is it like promoting such a wonderful place as this? You keep up the great work!

    • Hi Retha, you know I think back to a few years ago when I wanted to start my first website. It was like reading Chinese. I did not know where to start. I went to Godaddy and got my first domain and website, but I did not know what to do with it. That’s why this review is so valuable to me because it’s no use having the right tools to build something and then you’re stuck in a black hole, and don’t know what to do next. Wealthy Affiliate fulfilled that dream within a few hours. I literally had my website up and running within a few hours. Well I launched it within 30 seconds, but I filled it up with a few pages after a about 4 hours. I had so much fun doing it too. People have access to a wonderful platform like WA and I just want to let the whole world know that we are here to help. That’s what makes it so easy to promote. I wish you the best in your online business, and I’ll see ya around.

  2. Jonathan,

    Just read your blog about WordPress. Have been using for a bit now, but did not realize it was started as a charity site!

    I also read your post about making money using credit cards. It was an eye opener. I have been a bit timid about using them daily due to an issue I had years ago. However after seeing how little we make in interest, it may be time to reconsider this approach!

    Thanks for getting the information together for me!


    • Sami, I’m so glad you’re already using such an easy website builder like WordPress. Isn’t it amazing that there are such generous people around the world putting together such a wonderful and easy to use tool box. I love that we get to use all these tools for free.

      Thanks for reading my post on credit cards. I’m all about making money and I want to help other people to do it too. Feel free to browse my site. There are a lot of fun tips and informative reviews on different products. I hope that they will be able to help you.
