WordPress is so famous that the average Internet user instantly associates it with the best Content Management System or with the best tool for blogging. The statistics are really amazing- did you know that WordPress is almost 11 years old but there are more than 66 million websites based on it? Also, did you know that many of the most well-known websites are running using WordPress?
WordPress skills are from the most requested ones so any freelancer should take this CMS into account. Luckily, WordPress is a very simple tool and any of us may use it. Someone said that anyone familiarized with Microsoft Word will be able to use WordPress and personally I think that it’s very true this statement. In spite of many negative opinions, WordPress will continue to be the leading CMS in the near and medium future… it’s hard to offer a credible opinion on long time perspective by considering the fabulous speed of Internet evolution.
