WordPress is the most popular blogging software on the planet.
Between the hosted service at WordPress.com and the self-hosted
software available at WordPress.org, millions of bloggers use WordPress
today! That’s impressive. And with WordPress, you can truly tailor a blog to
your own tastes and needs.
With no cost for using the benefits of the WordPress platform to publish
content on the Web, WordPress is as priceless as it is free. WordPress
makes writing, editing, and publishing content on the Internet a delightful,
fun, and relatively painless experience whether you’re a publisher, designer,
developer — or just blogging as a hobby.

All-in-One For Dummies provides advanced information about security, the
