  1. Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    1. Sally, we use WordPress for our site, and it’s pretty user friendly. Once everything is set up, you don’t have to have any knowledge of code to work your website. I cannot do code myself, but with WordPress, I can manipulate the menus, the sidebars, the navigation, the text in my post, the links, and the photos, etc. You don’t have to have any special knowledge, just the perseverance to find out where each control is, what is does, and how much freedom it gives you. It takes some time to get the hang of it, but then it’s pretty easy.

      Thanks for your question!
