8 Reasons Why I Love WordPress

I’ve been blogging with WordPress since roughly November 2006 and have fallen in love with the blogging platform.

Here are 8 reasons why I love WordPress:

  1. Google loves WordPress — I love Google and I love WordPress and the two seem to be lifelong buddies.
  2. If you can operate Microsoft Word, you can probably use WordPress — Or maybe I should say, if you operate WordPress, you can probably operate Word?
  3. In taste tests, WordPress beats Blogger every day — I started out on Blogger and love that it helped me start crawling in blogging … but the keyword is “crawling.”
  4. Thousands of rockin’ free themes are out there to use
  5. And more are added each day — I threw mine into the mix!
  6. It lowers the bar for what it takes to maintain websites — Although WordPress is a blogging platform, it’s really so much more.
  7. No software needed — Have laptop and wireless connection? Go blog in Starbucks if you want and blog about your cats.
  8. One-click installs and the 5-minute installation — Can it get any faster?

Bonus: You get all this … and it’s FREE!

#8 One-click installs and the 5-minute installation — Can it get any faster?

i install WP in less than 2 minutes 😛 its damn easy-peasy 😀

I coach a track team, and it was a pain to update our web site on the road, since it was done in Dreamweaver. Internet Cafes don’t have Dreamweaver! Heck, some don’t have MS Word! With WordPress, all you need is a Browser and an Internet connection. And uploading photos and videos are a snap. No HTML code to configure, even though I’m an expert in HTML 🙂

I wouldn’t toss my copy of Dreamweaver just yet. WordPress is obviously more then just a CMS, you still may want to customize a theme. And if your using Dreamweaver its even easier then ever using a Dw extenstion called ThemeDreamer. It allows you to put the finishing touches on your website as well as unlocking Dreamweaver’s awsome design abilities so that they apply to WordPress.
