Why I WordPress!
I WordPress because it works for my clients. WordPress is the most widely accepted and powerful web publishing platform. Although initially designed as a blog publishing tool, WordPress has been developed into an extremely flexible web design tool. The world has spoken on this, and in fact, WordPress is by far the most used, most supported, most flexible, and scalable website creating platform.
I began building websites in the late nineties. Back then I coded web design with Notepad, DreamWeaver, and FrontPage. To be sure, most businesses used websites as online brochures. There was no need to think about issues like, cell phones, secure socket layer (SSL), or optimizing for search engines.
In January of 2008, while visiting the Samsung booth at the Las Vegas Consumer Electronics Show, I saw the future of the Internet. It was clear that the future was the mobile Internet. As a result, I immediately began to research mobile web design solutions.
After experimenting with Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress, it was clear to me that WordPress was moving faster in the direction of what we now call “Mobile First” web development.
Today the reality is you build for the mobile world, with the desktop experience in mind, but not ruling a website’s structure.
