WordPress

What is it?

Let me set the record straight, WordPress is NOT a website builder. It is a content management system that allows you to update your website content or add new pages to your website without knowing HTML or CSS.

Originally, WordPress was just a blogging system. Today it allows you to create blogs, as well as more general websites, and if you have the know-how, some really unique and creative sites as well. It can work equally well with a company site as it will work for a simple blog.

Why do you use it?

WordPress is used extensively all around the world and is primarily used for blogging. However, there is a lot more to WordPress than just blogging.

It can be used to create e-commerce sites (utilizing Woocommerce) which is something that many do not consider in their choice of a content management system to use. Especially since the rise of Shopify.

WordPress has actually developed a lot since its inception. It is now used by companies all over the world and is one of the most utilized platforms on the internet.

There are thousands of WordPress developers out there. They are constantly creating new plugins to add functionality to WordPress and this means that what you can get out of your WordPress software is limitless.
