Blogs are everywhere.
We live in a world of excess content. Every single day, people are writing blog posts, posting infographics, sharing case studies, and launching businesses. Content creation is at an all-time high.

It can serve as a place to host your art, resume, graphic design portfolio, blog posts, online store, you name it. Website building is the easiest way to display any of these things and WordPress is just about the easiest tool you can use to do it.
