I have a love/hate relationship with Worpress. This Speed Up WordPress Web Site article will give you an idea why. WordPress is a great platform to build beautiful sites. many people around the world incl. large corporations use WordPress in some fashion, whether as a full blown corporate web-site or a blog linked to the main web site.
It is easy to understand why WordPress is so popular. There are two main reasons. First, you can install a WordPress site yourself in minutes with most plans offered by Web Hosting Companies. The one I have used for years is Inmotionhosting.com. Secondly, once your WordPress site is installed not only do you get free themes but also tons of free plugins to do almost anything with your site. The themes are limited which is why I use Elegant Themes, but the amount of free plugins will amaze you.
