Well, it’s June 5, 2014, and I’ve finally upgraded JasonMcDonald.org to WordPress! What do they say? The cobbler’s children have no shoes. I have been a fan of WordPress for some time now, and let me list the reasons.
First, WordPress is a CMS (content management system), which allows you to really – well – manage content. So you can have pages and posts, and multiple authors. That allows a lot of flexibility when it comes to website content. Second, WordPress splits the visual design issues of the website from the HMTL coding and the content issues. So your “content people” can create content and your “graphics people” can create graphics, obviously, all software will have its pros and cons for different people, which is why it would be foolish for others to overlook WordPress alternatives when looking for different CMS’ to create your website.
Third, WordPress has a wealth of plug in’s such as the Yoast plug in for SEO (which I am using here). The plug in for WordPress are phenomenal – plugins for SEO, for social media, and for Google AdWords. All pretty much at the click of a button, and most with very robust free versions. To become more adept with SEO strategies, reading these wp seo tips could help to get your WordPress site the additional attention you want.
If you’re a business or an individual looking to expand your online influence into the WordPress platform, but are lacking the skills to build a well-designed site yourself, getting in contact with someone like a fort collins wordpress designer could help you move forwards with this desire and hopefully take the internet by storm!
Finally, WordPress is a blogging platform, so it makes it easy and fast to blog. I plan to blog more on the site, about SEO, about social media marketing, about AdWords and about the San Francisco Bay Area.
Welcome friends, family and fans to the new and improved JasonMcDonald.org, now coming to you via WordPress!
