With constant negativity surrounding the blogsphere it’s nice to every now and then reflect on why we love what we do and give credit where credit is due. This article’s purpose is not to sell or persuade you that you need to move to the WordPress side (although not a bad idea to do so!), it’s more one of those soppy blogs where we can put all negativity aside and just focus on what we love.
And without further adieu here’s 10 Things I love about WordPress.
1. WordPress is free
Anyone can start a simple website in a matter of minutes for free, it’s great if you’re just wanting to test the waters of a WordPress site, of course the premium themes and domain names do cost but its not much.
2. Super simple to setup
WordPress has themes designed to provide the template for your website, all that’s left to do is add your own content, images and colour design.
3. Built for everyone
Websites can now be built by just about anybody, you don’t need to be an experienced web developer to build a super sleek website, you can easily have a professional website built by you.
4. Lots of free stuff
From templates to plugins, WordPress comes equipped with heaps of freebies to get your website up and running. There are also huge amounts of free resources available to you through WordPress.org.
5. Great support & community
Backed by possibly the largest online CMS community in the world, you have access to resources, tutorials and forums where any WordPress question or issue can be quickly resolved.
Designed to work around your website needs, any template can easily be adjusted to suit the style and feel of your design.
7. Designed for you
WordPress was initially designed as a blogging platform but after such great success it’s become the world’s number one CMS platform for websites. It’s clever design and easy-to-use dashboard is created so anyone can build and manage their own website.
8. SEO friendly
WordPress design has been created to optimise SEO concepts with the ability to easily define H1 and H2 headings, assign categories, assign alt tags and post tags.
9. Themes galore
With thousands of themes to choose from you're sure to find one that suits you perfectly and with new designs frequently being launched your site will always be trendy.
10. More than just a blog
WordPress is now the platform for some of the world’s largest websites. With access to so many themes and plugins there is no limit to what your WordPress site can look like or do.
