Powering over 700 million websites worldwide, WordPress stands as the top blogging software today. (That is 27% of the world's total websites.) Since its rise in 2003, WordPress made site building easier for everyone. In just a few steps, one can launch a working website. Even without coding skills, one can still customize engaging websites.
