What is WordPress?
So in a nutshell what is WordPress? Word Press is a Content Management System or CMS for short. It is a platform that started for blogs and grew. The platform is designed for ease and options. With this platform you can add and remove features without the need of lengthy code. This is done with plugins.

The best thing about WordPress would have to be the amount of support. The community is vibrant and there is lots of free support. Also the amount of free plugins is amazing. The ability to customize to your liking is one of the best as well. This is why it is becoming a favorite among beginners and experts.

For businesses it can be a platform to showcase and hand off information to customer. With the amount of plugins you can easily integrate Social Media and SEO.
With an easy learning curve and the available resources out there a WordPress site can be for everyone. This is why its my recommendation for anyone starting out and want to do it themselves. If you have a different platform I would love to know.
