I recently decided to mash things up and move over to this new blogging platform and design template. I was a little frustrated with having my blog entries sort of scattered on a few different platforms and figured that wordpress had the best toolkit to synthesize everything and then continue to build.
There are a couple reasons why I really like the wordpress publishing framework:
- Unlike other “free” and “open source” solutions that have hidden agendas, WordPress is completely free. It doesn’t start charging when you hit a certain size, nor does it close off any of its code to you.
- Plenty of platforms out there offer plugin functionality, but WordPress is by far the smoothest and easiest to use.
- WordPress has the best SEO in the self-publishing market. It also has great data analytics and all the features for tagging, ranking and categorizing.
- Because it is such a popular toolkit, there is a large base of community support. It is possible to find blogs, forums, and tutorials to answer pretty much any question.
I hope that this will be a much more permanent home for all my thoughts on startups, technology, education and anything else I feel like blogging about.
