My name is Nissa Askew and I have been working with the powerful WordPress platform since 2006. So, what is WordPress exactly? It is by far one of the most popular and robust publishing platforms out there today.
From the official site:
WordPress is a state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.
More simply, WordPress is what you use when you want to work with your blogging software, not fight it.
WordPress was first developed as an open-source blogging system. Over the years, developers have assisted in its growth and built many features that extend its capabilities into a full-fledged content management system. It is a content management system that can change, adapt, and is completely scalable to grow with you and your business.
WordPress gives users the ability to edit, add, and change content without having to know how to code. It puts the control in your hands. You can upload photos, change your page content, add testimonials, videos, its limits are boundless. It is supported by a large network of developers so there are plenty of resources and tutorials out there.
