Comments: Overall, Wordpress is solid website or blog option. If you like to tinker with code and dive into the nitty gritty of website development, you will absolutely LOVE Wordpress. The customizable options are nearly limitless and the power of the program is great.

Pros: There are SO MANY WAYS to customize your blog or web site with Wordpress, that if you can't create a page you like, it is truly your issue! Not only does Wordpress offer options, but the Wordpress community is so creative and a simple Google search will reveal countless free and purchasable options for your Wordpress site. It is truly the best feature of the their offerings. Overall, once you begin using the software, the basic operation of a site is pretty simple and so many products are made to work fairly well with the Wordpress engine. The WP community is super creative and bright, and there seem to be a lot of users who are eager to help other users. It is a great product.

Cons: The biggest downside is the back end operation of your site; especially if you're like me and don't want to spend much time under the hood. Because so many companies and products offer Wordpress compatible plugins, you can get just about anything you need for an update. HOWEVER, on several occasions we experienced a Wordpress update that caused conflicts with some of our plugins, some of which were key cogs in our website. Of course, the plugin creators usually caught up quickly, but sometimes a couple of days would go by before everything was behaving again. DISCLAIMER: I never became fluent enough in the Wordpress backend to sole these problems on my own, so the frustration was more significant as I was dependent on the WP community (which is great!) to help solve these issues. It seems like 10-12 times a year we had technical glitches that made it frustrating for a guy like me who was looking for more plug-n-play software.

Why I think everyone should be using WordPress

Comments: For any any start up I would recommend using WordPress its easy to use and it grows with you.

Pros: WordPress is 100% free!!!!!! I have been using WordPress for years ( i.e WordPress.com and WordPress.org) back when I was junior systems administrator and now that I'm self employed, and I will tell you its ridiculously easy to use. You don't need any specialized web development or programming skills to use it. Everything is almost plug and play. In fact if you can turn on a computer, If you and read and if you can click with a mouse, you can use WordPress. Its that simple and easy to use. WordPress is the platform most commerce sites/blogs are built on consequently when it comes to apps and support there is no lack of finding any. Even thought I said WordPress is free and it is. There are some cost associated with using the service or application. The cloud or online based service allows you to host you WordPress site for free or use one of their other offering for a fee. However there is the free application and easily downloadable software, for which the only cost associated is hosting and maybe the design of a theme if you don't want to use any of the free ones available all over the Internet. It doesn't matter what you need a site for whether blogging, personal or ecommerce, WordPress can do it. Your WordPress site will always look the same. It doesn't matter what operating system it being hosted or viewed from, whether its a mobile device or desktop, Its going to be the same and legibly too.

Cons: The choices of themes and plugins can be very overwhelming especially to a newbie. The free cloud based version is limited re the use of plugins but you a good cadre of free plugins from Jetpack
