1) Based on your experience with WordPress, what are your impressions with working with WordPress—the pros and cons? It started as a blogging platform but has evolved—should it still be relegated for small blogs, or do you see enterprise use?
This is apart of my class assignment. I feel I have to mention that, because I will mention some negative, some good, but some negative things.
- Pros- It is very popular among many people I have grown to love and follow like Techcrunch and Phoblographer. It has a vast user base that gives it a nice community feeling; almost like a social media platform. It has an easy way to customize the feel and look of the website for people who don’t know how to code or are just curious about blogging. It saves me time.
- Cons- Some of you might have noticed but my layout changed. I was browsing themes and clicked activate on a random theme and all my organized tabs and pillars and posts got arranged in a manner that I have not yet fixed. So, all the posts are in a kind of limbo at the moment while I figure out what I need to do to fix my old posts back on to the new layout. It was a whoopsie on my part.
It can definitely be used to build a business and make a name for oneself, as well as be used to just write about ones thoughts on their favorite stick of butter. Either way, WordPress has their back.
