WordPress – Top Notch Blog Platform
Whenever there is a discussion about the most popular open source CMSs (content management systems), WordPress is always on the top of the list. What adds to WordPress’s widespread popularity is its ease of use and the fact that it has always been free since its inception in 2003.
Across the 30 versions released so far, each besting the previous one, WordPress remains the most preferred choice among bloggers worldwide. The extensive user base of WordPress includes famous blogs like TechCrunch, trusted media houses like the New Yorker and BBC America as well as celebrities like Beyonce and Larry King.
Getting started with WordPress is as easy as counting the one, two, three. You just need to download the free WordPress script to your server, install it, and you are all set to create your own blog.
Another wonderful aspect of WordPress is its cross-platform integration. Applications for all major mobile environments, including Android, iOS, Windows and Blackberry are available. These applications, although not offering 100% functionality, come across as a great tool to moderate your website.
Post version 3.0 that was released in mid-2010, multiple users can co-exist in the same installation. This became possible with the merger of WordPress MU (Multi User) with WordPress in the version 3.0.
To sum it up, the free availability coupled with the effortless usage across mobile and computer machines, WordPress trumps all other open source CMSs available today.
