Why I use WordPress (from a end user point of view)

wordpressUsers

I freelance and get a chance to work with some great people. Most of my clients are small to medium sized businesses that are looking for a website or some kind of online presence. When they get in touch with me I start asking questions on what their end goal is. The questions become more involving and I discover that some are interested in a website (whatever platform or CMS that is) and some are wanting a WordPress site because they have either heard of it before, or they have used it in the past. They usually are very open on why they want to use WordPress and I'm happy to hear that from them. I end up having a great conversation which results in some solid reasoning on why they should be choosing a WordPress site.

First, it has a great user interface. It's very easy to find what you need and pretty intuitive on how to use it with minimal training, although some time invested in understanding your site is time well spent. Second, it's easy to find support. In a lot of cities there are WordPress meetups to show up at and meet like-minded people whether that is end users (bloggers, content creators, or owners) and/or developers/designers. I co-organize one in Peoria, IL and the energy is great and benefitial to all that show up. The online community for WordPress is huge. The forums at WordPress.org (which I volunteer from time to time on) are great and more than likely you can get your questions answered there. Also, there is no shortage of hired help whether that be a developer/designer/consultant.

So when deciding on a platform, make sure you take the time to understand what you want out of it and the total cost of getting that. The time spent is worth it.

Customers in Australia order more medicaments per man than any other area. The availability of remedies marketed by online pharmacies is certainly a contributing factor to formula remedy abuse epidemic. Some medicines are used to prevent dental abscesses in men with weak immune systems caused by diseases such as AIDS. At times humanity are looking for medicaments to determination sexual health problem. Now sundry articles were published about buy cheap cialis. When you buy medicines like Viagra you must ask your physician about "cheap cialis 5mg". A scientific review about "cialis pills" report that men's most common sexual problem is ED. Low interest in sex isn't the same as impotency, but numerous similar aspects that stifle an erection can also reduce your wish. Do not take more of Viagra or any other medicine than is recommended. Your pharmacist may at times change your dose to be sure you get perfect results.

The importance of getting involved

2013-06-09 15.20.44

I’ve been trying to focus on getting more involved in my development community. Not just the local community but also the world community. Some of the ways I’ve been able to do that is to help organize a local WordPress meetup, volunteering some time to spend on the WordPress forums, and just recently, volunteering some time to help out at the Seattle WordPress Wordcamp.

For me, it's been huge. When you get involved, you share your experiences by helping or teaching. When you teach, you learn. To go through the process of discussing a subject, you are forced to reflect on that subject and you may find that you are discovering details about it that were just under the surface for you. Also, other people's questions and observations can shake things up and make you look at the subject from a different angle.

So if you want to gain some new insight, get involved in the community. You won't regret it after you discover the benefits.
