I have for a long time have had the idea to create a blog of my own from scratch in HTML5 to simply give the new technology a go. I figured that it would be a great opportunity for me to showcase my skills as a programmer, but instead found that WordPress provided the full functionality that I was in need of.
I must admit that WordPress – even based on the limited functionality based on updating the style sheet of your own (which you will need to pay to do) – does not require much administration, is easy to use and provides lots of customized themes and plugins; no wonder it is so popular!
Even though WordPress has not been as customizable as I would personally would have liked it to be, I have gone with the flow and is now part of the revolution. WordPress ahoy!
