What is WordPress?

WordPress is a content management system (CMS) for websites.  Originally built as a blogging platform, WordPress quickly became a powerhouse with an ability to manage an entire website’s content.  As an award winning CMS, WordPress is used by more than 18% of all websites online.

Who uses WordPress?

Photographers, local governments, construction companies, retailers, bloggers, news agencies, advertisement agencies, and just about any type of site you wish to run.  The reason so many people use WordPress is because it is 1) easy to use and, 2) very easy to add functionality to.  WordPress is widely supported and easy to develop for.  Therefore, custom builds are typically lower cost and more reliable than other options available on the market.  Plugins are “add ons” to your website where you can add calendars, event registration, newsletter signup, extra text, user sign-in, and again; basically anything you can think of.  If you can’t find it, it can be developed.  That is power and functionality all rolled up to give you one dependable platform.  Here is a list of some companies that use WordPress to manage their websites.
