My love for WordPress is no secret.  I’ve been in the web design business for a long time.  I’ve written whole paragraphs of code just for one sentence and went through the craze for Flash animation, which could slow a website’s performance to a depilating crawl.  Since WordPress came along, I have watched it grow from a simple blog platform to the website giant it is now.

WordPress is hardly the only game in town. There are plenty of website platforms out there. In an effort  to stay current, I have tried many of them, but I always come back to WordPress.  Here’s why:

  1. WordPress is the world’s most popular content management system (CMS).It’s been downloaded over 10 million times for use by bloggers, small business owners, and large corporations. WordPress’s popularity speaks for itself.
  2. WordPress helps you automatically share your content to attract new clients or readers.In the age of social media, sharing is everything. WordPress can help you automatically share new content on social media platforms.
  3. WordPress has been translated into more than 70 different languages.You can create a site in your own language and then translate it into other languages for an international audience.
  4. WordPress allows you to have registered users with differentiated access.  When people register as users on your site, you have the ability to assign roles that determine what they see and what they can do.
  5. WordPress can be used “out of the box” with minimal setup.WordPress is robust enough to be usable immediately at installation.
  6. WordPress software is stable and secure. WordPress has been around for a long time and has an extensive community of developers, designers, and users.  It’s a staple of the web design world that is here to stay.
  7. WordPress is highly flexible and adaptable.WordPress allows users to customize as much as they need to achieve their vision.  If you can dream it, WordPress can help you build it.

Well, I think I have made my case. It’s an easy one to make because WordPress is such a uniquely phenomenal web design platform. It’s really a no-brainer.
