Over the years WordPress has become one of the leading content management systems, to think back to days where people questioned its ability to be more than a blogging platform only leads me to a good chuckle. I’ve played with so many content management systems, from Drupal to Expression Engine to Joomla to even some smaller ones, I can honestly say that WordPress has it all.
WordPress powers over 70 million blogs on the Internet, if you want to look at the activity, WordPress has an awesome stats page with a global activity map and more over here. A more impressive statistic is that WordPress powers 49% of the top blogs on Technorati’s list.
Take a look at this:
Pretty darn impressive for a “blogging platform” if you ask me.
On a side note: iMod ran for several years on a custom CMS that I wrote myself, also powered by PHP and MySQL, but I finally went over to the dark side and the three things that have kept me plugged into WordPress are:
- Community Support
- Security Updates
Just those three things alone make WordPress an incredible platform.
