You should get on the WordPress bandwagon

2000px-WordPress_logo.svg

I started my journey with WordPress in 2011, I had to use it for a new job and was dropped into an ocean of plugins, themes, posts and pages. I had never before completed a website, graphic design was more my thing. It took me a day or two to get the just of it and about a week to feel comfortable. It’s been 3 years and I am still learning something new on each site I build.

The first thing you think of when you hear the word WordPress is blog. Yes it is a fantastic blogging tool. But it can be so much more. I have built an array of different websites on WordPress, interactive websites, booking websites, social platforms,  portfolios, fully eCommerce sites, even Facebook Iframes. I mean the possibilities are endless. The best thing is it is so user friendly that clients can make their own posts and updates.

Just to give you an idea of the popularity of WordPress:

More than half the people who use CMS prefer WordPress.

Bringing plugins into the mix is like stepping into Narnia. The possibilities are endless. There is a plugin for every function you might want on your website – or someone you can hire to build the plugin you need. You can find free plugins here or get some custom paid ones at Premium WordPress Plugins or Code Canyon. An in depth plugin post coming soon…

urlFor me picking a WordPress theme is easy, there is only one I work with and it is Headway Themes.  Click here for a demo.

    I also use WordPress (the free version) for blogging and I love it. I am still learning about plugins, so I hope your site will post some more info on this.

    All the best with this venture
