    Hey this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or
    if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a
    blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance
    from someone with experience. Any help would be
    enormously appreciated!
