Absolutely in vain, it is enough to deal with this platform - it is simple that I also am going to prove to you. But at first I offer you the history of acquaintance to WordPress.
Before opening the blog, I asked a question too: where and how to make it? After long studying of the market, I stopped on the WordPress platform on a paid hosting.
I will not hide, first there were many difficulties and obstacles: lack of experience in programming, lack of time, work, holiday etc. But now everything rose on the places, there is a normal working process what I am inexpressibly glad to. And I do not regret at all that my choice fell on WordPress. With a cursor it is happy, moreover: developers do not cease to surprise with new, convenient lotions in the administrator - panels which appear nearly in each updating of a cursor. Updating comes out approximately once a month.
As for the administrator - panels, here everything is made conveniently and clear, on development of its opportunities you will not need a lot of time and big intellectual efforts. Without having initial knowledge in html, you will be able quite to cope with the main functions of a cursor: to create headings and pages, to insert images, audio-and video files, and the most important - to publish the articles.

At the moment for WordPress more than 9000 plug-ins which most part can be downloaded on the website of support of the Russian WordPress exist. It is simple to come to conclusion that for the solution practically of any task on the blog there will be the plug-in.
