1) First of all, WordPress is distributed under an Open Source license — which means means you can download and use the WordPress software however you like… for free. But it also means that hundreds of volunteers all around the world are constantly creating and improving the WordPress software.
2) Second, WordPress is easy to learn and use — Instead of hiring a web designer every time you want to make a small change to your website, you can easily manage and update your own content… using basic formatting tools you’re probably already familiar with.
3) Third, it’s completely customizable — There are thousands of themes and plugins that enable you to easily change the entire look of your website, or even add new features to your website with just a few clicks.
4) Next, if you run into problems, or you want to add custom features, it’s easy to find support or hire someone to help you. In addition to the WordPress tutorials on this site, there are also thousands of WordPress developers and designers who can help you. The official WordPress Forum is a great place to get answers to your questions. And every year, there are thousands of local WordPress events happening all over the world where you can meet and talk with other WordPress users.
5) Last, you’re in control of your own content. Some other publishing platforms limit what you can and can’t do on your own website. And, you’re locked in to that service; if it should ever shut down, your content could simply disappear. With WordPress, you can import your data from other platforms like Blogger or Tumblr, and you can easily export your data to move away from WordPress, anytime you choose. You’re in control of your content.
If you’re looking for an easy tool that will help you to build your own website or blog without having to learn how to code, you’ll love WordPress. And, you’ll find that WordPress is incredibly flexible, with thousands of themes, plugins, and support options to ensure that your site will continue to grow with you in the future.
