Using WordPress has its many advantages from unlimited themes, plugins, and widgets to open source software and the incredible knowledge forums available on the Internet.

I don't think you should kiss HTML goodbye! Instead, aside from using WordPress, you should consider learning HTML to enjoy its full advantage. You will even appreciate WordPress even more if you know even just a bit of HTML.

I do agree with Shawn... learn HTML if you want to serious about building the online presence. Even WordPress (which I love) has it's limitations. There are definitely times when knowing how to manipulate the HTML makes a huge difference.

I think that explosion of personal publishing and social media interaction and conversation is due to the simplicity of getting started to write your own electronic journal or log of your web activities. As a citizen journalist, you don't have to know how to code hyper text markup language in order get your word out. It much easier now to have your own printing press!

The next phase is on its way with the very simple microblogging sites and platforms like Twitter, FriendFeed, Tumblr and Posterous.

Things happen all the time. All sorts of weird technical issues pop up over the course of year if you are active online. If I had to sit back and wait for someone else to come and fix them because I did not want to peer under the hood, my business would suffer. Of course it is great to do things quickly, with or without code.

On the one hand I think you are giving your competitors a distinct advantage if you think you can be online and never have to look at code of some sort.

On the other hand, all of the "code-less" features are wonderful ways for everyone to start blogging and learn about code as the problems pop up or as you want to do new things. That's what I did.

Do yourself a favor. If you're serious about blogging, or about Web entrepreneurship, take the plunge, pick up a book and learn HTML...and for that matter XHTML increasingly important for Search Engine Optimization. The increased versatility you will gain will amaze you and the difficulty level is low. Visit your favorite sites and use the source function on your pull down menu to see how they are coded. The investment will be well worth your time.
