I have struggled for years to put up a decent looking web site. What I usually ended up with, although functional, was a patchwork of different pages, all with different functions. Then, I started reading about WordPress.
What makes it so wonderful?
- It’s free
- It has hundreds of templates
- You can update in real time, without using an upload process
- It’s open source, so you can customize it to your heart’s content
- It’s widely used, so there’s a lot of help out there
- It has lots of plugins that allow RSS, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), search capability, and much more
Are you sold? After the first two weeks of using it, I was blown away. And it’s been about 10 years now, and with the advent of Gutenberg, it’s better than ever.
