Controlling your web world with WordPress

It used to go a little something like this: you’d call a web designer to get your site designed, and then when you wanted to change some text or add some photos you’d have to call them again to get the changes made. While some people still like to work in this method, preferring to let the experts do the job for them, for years people have been asking, “Can’t I just make the changes myself?”

There’s no shortage of content management systems (CMS) on the market, and at the top of my list CMS list sits WordPress.

Although WordPress started out as a blogging system, it’s since evolved into a full CMS, and its blogging capabilities allow for seamless integration with social media platforms. WordPress has been available for the past 10 years, and it’s now used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day. Whether you want a basic site that showcases your business, or you want an eCommerce site with all the bells and whistles, WordPress allows you to manage your site and make changes at your convenience.

WordPress is not only free but it’s upgraded regularly, and there’s an infinite number of external code constantly being written and updated that can easily be integrated into your site.

If you’re looking at upgrading your old, static HTML site to a newer version that’s viewable on both mobile and desktop platforms, and you’re looking to change your own content once your web guru has handed over the keys to your new site, than WordPress is a platform that should be taken into consideration.
