We have all experienced that moment when we are suddenly advised to switch from the site you have been using to WordPress for better documentation or blogs. “But hey, what is wordpress?” you may ask. Don’t panic, I am here for you. And well, if you haven’t gone through that switch moment, then this blog is definitely going to save you a whole lot of time as well.
In summary in this post, i am going to go over the following; what is WordPress and what are the benefits of using it. WordPress is basically the platform on which most websites on the internet are built.
I am here to give you as much information as possible and be of some sort of help to you all. Just sit back and let me carry that heavy load for your shoulders.
There are two different sites, being WordPress.com and WordPress.org. In this case when I say WordPress, I am meaning WordPress.org which is also a popular website host.
Without delay, let me get right to it. WordPress is simply software where you are allowed to make blogs, create your own website, and complex portals and applications can be made.
So why should you trust WordPress the? Let me lay all the cards out for you.
1)Increase Your Creativity And Cultivate Your Skills.
You sure can put your rich mind to reality. Having the site to create and cultivate your skills brings such calmness to us. WordPress provides that opportunity to customise using various themes as well as plugins. Plugins allow you to add features to your WordPress Website and are in addition good at improving the functionality. This already shows the techniques you can explore to your will, henceforth the flexibility all at your disposal.
2) Freedom At Your Disposal.
Oh yes, by freedom I mean you don’t ever need to worry about those monthly payments or subscriptions that keep you at the edge and surely uncomfortable. No no, WordPress has got your best interest, where you can freely enjoy it with the assurance of your constant productivity.Like getting your favourite game, you just need to install, download, open and use WordPress at your liberty. Meanwhile having all your work well documented and saved at absolutely NO COST.
3)Want To Showcase Your Skills On Social Media?
If you are like me, I enjoy having various platforms to showcase myself at which social media sure does so well. WordPress is that selfless, you won’t be pinned down to only writing. With a ready built-in media up-loader, you can, all in the same place embed those bomb instagram pictures, interesting Youtube videos or those funny tweets along with audios. This is definitely my favourite feature of WordPress and I guarantee it will be amazing for you as well.
4)Search Engine Optimisation, Increase Your Ranking On Google.
We all need to create those amazing graphic designs to our full potential and imagination. Here, Search Engine Optimisation is surely important and WordPress does not hesitate in providing it. In addition, having S.E.O permits your documents to be acceptable by Google, and we all know most the internet is increasingly revolving around Google. So why let this free pass ticket pass you by.
5) WordPress Offers You Extra Security.
Oh yes that sense of security we all long for. Is my work going to be safe? Can anyone log into my account? Can I trust that I won’t be hacked?
To be honest with you, yes WordPress goes to extra lengths to ensure you don’t incur that fatal experience. However,we have to be realistic as well that hackers just somehow unfortunately exist and this is why WordPress offers you an extra mile into security. There is no guarantee but there sure are strong precautions taken for you to be as comfortable as possible.
6.Own Your Domain Name.
Unlike some other software sites, such as WordPress.com, WordPress. org entertains and ensures that you can create a Domain name of your choice without being owned by any other site. In this case, you are certainly your own BOSS.
7.You Have Self Host Advantage.
This is really one of the most awesome contents that come with WordPress.org. Having a self host advantage means you are free to choose the host you prefer to be able to display your content online where everyone worldwide can access it. This gives the highest opportunity to market yourself, your work or your passion really using ads. This is,I should mention is not acceptable on WordPress.com, yes I know right, that is definitely annoying. We all need to be able to monetise our efforts freely while enjoying the whole process.
