    Hi are using WordPress for your site platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own.
    Do you need any html coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      You can use WordPress without any coding. For any problem you might have while using it, you’ll find tutorial videos on YouTube. I highly recommend WordPress, you won’t find a better blogging system.
