    any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be really
    appreciated!

    • Yes! It’s in WordPress. Knowing html and css basics would be a plus. However, you can use wordpress without knowing it. There are couple of plugins out there that you can test. Do ask me if you need anything related to wordpress setup. Thanks!
