What is WordPress?

WordPress is a free blogging tool with some pay features (like special themes), which is fairly sophisticated.  Wordpress allows users to either create a blog and host it on wordpress’ servers (which use the .wordpress.com address) or use another hosting service independent of WordPress.

WordPress allows complex customization options, and provides a wide selection of themes to use for free.  Wordpress allows users to embed widgets (such as a twitter or facebook feed) into their websites.  Other options allow for polls, comments, pages, and links; which can be created easily within the WordPress editor view.

Overall WordPress is far easier to use than manually creating the blog yourself, and since it can be hosted on an independent service, it is ideal for business who want their blog to have a professional feel.
