“Proudly Powered by Wordpress” returns 7,450,000 hits in google and even more in Yahoo! Apparently people aren’t just keeping the Wordpress credits in their footer, they’re actually flaunting it. “What does Wordpress have that other blogging tools don’t have?”, “Why should I bother with Wordpress?”, “Can I live without Wordpress?”. If you’re asking questions like this, then you truly don’t know what you’re missing.
You can sometimes tell how great a product is by who’s using it. So, who exactly is powered by Wordpress? The list gets pretty repetitive with names you hear everyday, but here goes: Yahoo!, CNN, Sony Playstation, The New York Times, Ebay, People Magazine, FOX News, Rolling Stone, Reuters, CNet, Techcrunch, and you get the point. Other popular web design/development websites like PSDTuts, Smashing Magazine, and, yours truly, theDailyApp all harness the power of Wordpress.
A few modest features include ability to create static pages, dynamic post entries, commenting, multiple authors, and W3C compliance, and the every-convenient “tagging” feature. You can also have an unlimited number of categories, which can be organized using an unlimited tree-level pattern (Category 1 > Sub Cat > Sub Cat > Sub Cat > etc.) For the full list of mind-blowing features check out this page.
Wordpress is the ultimate blogging tool that can be obtained and maintained by a beginner, to customized and popularized by an expert.
