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

      Hi, so I would say that for your blog, you’re better off not doing much of anything except putting the content in. If you use WordPress, then the theme takes care of all of the appearance elements. It can be tempting to get really fancy with it. I use Elementor for my site, and I could use it on my blog posts, but extra code just slows the webpage down. When people come to my site, it’s typically because they have a question and want an answer. If your page loads in more than two seconds, people will leave.

      So normally, I just put my content right into the blog editor. I format my headings and such, but I don’t do anything beyond the necessary formatting needed for a smooth reader experience. So I don’t recommend using the WYSIWYG editors or any extra code. Let your theme do its job.
