There are a good number of content management systems and web publishing platforms out there. Some examples include, but aren’t limited to, SharePoint, Metro Publisher, WhichBox and Koken. But out of all the existing and well-known content and publishing systems out there, WordPress is by far the most popular of them all.
WordPress, known originally as a simple blogging platform, has expanded into something much more than that. Now, not only is it a place for people to write for their blogs, but you can utilize WordPress as a full website or web shop as well. You’d be surprised how many sites these days run on WordPress. There have been times I’ve honestly been shocked when I find that a good looking and well made site has been run on WordPress.
Because of it’s versatility, as well as the amount of adaptions you can implement with WordPress, the platform has been given such praise by both designers and users alike. It’s simple, effective, and there’s still so much you can do with it. There’s no need to be a master of coding or website design when you are planning on using WordPress. Did you know that TIME, Mashable,Marketing Land and Search Engine Land are all built on WordPress. A quarter of the world’s top 10 million website are all built around WordPress, and you probably wouldn’t even know it.
