There are many reasons to use WordPress, let’s list some reasons:
- Hundreds upon hundreds of awesome plugins. Need a plugin to handle ads? How about a plugin to greet new visitors? Maybe one that speeds up your server? They are available to any inquisitive searcher at WordPress Plugins.
- Great community support. WordPress.org has an amazing forum that anyone can hop onto, ask a question, and get a great answer, often within hours.
- It’s EASY! Unlike some CMS or Blogging software, WordPress is 1-2-3 easy. After installation, any goofball can post and manage their blog. Maintenance and plug-in installation is super easy, as is plug-in upgrading. And with the new WordPress 2.7, the entire thing upgrades nicely.
- It’s Open Source. That means you get a product that took thousands of manhours to build but is free to you. Isn’t that a great deal?
- Super themable. I am sure you are well aware of this one, because here you are! But honestly, WordPress is so customizable on the public end that sometimes you have a very difficult time telling if sites run on WordPress.
There are so many more reasons, it’s ridiculous! But this is a fair assessment and you should have no trouble using WordPress.
