I admit it – I’m a bit of a WordPress snob. I love WordPress and wouldn’t even dream of using anything else. When I first started blogging I started out using a Blogger blog because it was the only thing I knew of. Within two months of starting my fist blog I discovered WordPress, moved my blog over to a self hosted WordPress blog and haven’t looked back. If you are having trouble deciding which blogging platform is right for you and if you are looking for an easily customizable and user friendly option, look no further than WordPress.
What WordPress Has to Offer
WordPress offers customizable templates. Some of these templates are free and can be found online through a search engine, via the WordPress website, or from developers themselves. Other WordPress templates can be created and designed by a professional to meet your specific needs. And you can also find WordPress templates available for sale online. In short, you can create a 100% unique website with WordPress templates.
It’s so very easy to use. Whether you’re a blogging novice or an industry expert, WordPress offers a user friendly control panel. Even the customization of readymade templates is pretty straightforward. And there are blog posts, manuals and forums on just about every WordPress topic under the sun which means if you have a question, chances are the answer is out there and easy to find.
Widgets and plug-ins. Because WordPress is so very popular, there are literally thousands of developers continuously working to create widgets and plug-ins to solve the needs of bloggers like you and to make your blog experience unique for your readers. Widgets and plug-ins cater to just about every interest or need from games, to social networking to SEO tracking and data. If you need it, you can probably find it in a widget or a plug-in.
But what I love the most about having a self-hosted WordPress blog is that I have complete control of the entire site. There are no rules about what I can or cannot put on my blog.
