WordPress is an excellent publishing platform for blogs and websites and in the last few years it has really sky-rocketed in popularity!
WordPress is clearly the dominating blogging platform and it’s also growing in popularity as a website Content Management System (CMS). Here at Web Chameleon we’ve had experience with many online technologies and many websites, and our publishing platform of choice for websites as well as for blogs is WordPress. Once you learn how to use it well it is very powerful and has almost endless possibilities.
It’s interesting to note that Pingdom’s findings are very similar to what Technorati found in their State of the Blogosphere 2011 report. They found that 51% of the world’s blogs use WordPress.
When Pingdom asked the founding developer of WordPress, Matt Mullenweg, whether there is still room for more growth, Mullenweg said he expected even higher adoption rates among the largest sites and blogs over the next year.
