It’s very easy to manage and you can create a stunning blog with its themes and plugins. I started my first blog with WordPress and now almost 95% of blogs are running on WordPress (few are on blogger.com).

I would highly recommend you to use WordPress.org as it is very easy to use and user-friendly. Even you can also create your own website by watching some tutorials on Youtube.
