Support: For many, thinking of WordPress is identical to thinking “blog.” WordPress is one of the world’s most powerful blogging platforms. According to W3Techs, WordPress is used by 58.6% of all the websites whose content management system we know. This is 24.9% of all websites. Now that is a huge number, a number that makes it almost impossible to find anything close to and as well-supported as WordPress. This means that if you deal with any kind of problem with WordPress, the chances of not getting a solution are almost zero.
Customization: WordPress plugin architecture allows users to extend the features and functionality of a website or blog. WordPress has over 40,501 plugins available, each of which offers custom functions and features enabling you to tailor your blog to your specific needs and give it a unique look.
Control: With WordPress, you use a WordPress hosting provider to host your own site. You are free to decide how long you want to run it and when you want to shut it down. You own all your data, and you control what information you share with any third party. This is not the case with many of the other popular blogging platforms out there.
That’s why we highly recommend using WordPress as your publishing platform, unless of course you have a specific reason to do otherwise.
