It’s very easy to get started with the WordPress blogging platform. I can’t compare it to Blogger or others as I’ve not tried those yet. I’ll be sure to comment later when I do.
One recommendation to WordPress developers: on the initial sign-up screen where a username is to be provided, please have the field run a check to see if the username is already being used by another. You don’t find out until you’ve submitted the form. Just a quibble.
Once you’re signed up, it’s very inuitive, at least for me, to add, edit and remove posts and the other basic tools of blogging. And choosing among different templates/designs is easy. I’ve not explored customizing them or creating your own from scratch.
