  • Can you create a website with WordPress without first creating a blog? I’m not contemplating a blog now, and may not in the future, either.

  • You can use WordPress without it operating as a “blog”. Many people use WordPress as a general Content Management System.

    If you’re considering using it as a CMS now, and adding a blog later then you can store most of your sites content in the “Pages” section of the WordPress admin. Later on once you’ve decided to add a blog you can start putting your articles in the “Posts” section of the admin and link to your various forms of content accordingly.

    To expand on @boda82‘s info, WP by default shows blog posts on your main page

    But under settings->readin you can assign a page as your front page. Helps to get it less ‘bloggy’
