WordPress – Blogging SoftwareWordPress
is magical to get you started with blogging. It’s so simple and easy to use, no wonder over 20% of websites on the web use it. For those not sure what WordPress is it’s a bit like Microsoft Word but for web publishing! I’m using it and most other food bloggers are.

No need to pay for a designer to create your site. With ThemeForest
they have 1,000’s of wonderful looking themes for you to choose from. From the ones I have used they make it really simple to make changes to your site and even customise the theme to add your touch to it.
