I have been a user of WordPress since it’s first release. In fact, I used its’ problematic daddy “b2″ before that. When everyone was foaming at the mouth with glee about Moveable Type, I was sticking it out with WordPress. Since then it has become a dream to work with and I recommend it to anyone who wants to self-host a blog.
In fact, for ministries wanting to build a website of less than 25 pages, WordPress is a sensible default since there are now website focused themes like VibrantCMS out there that makes it dead simple. The only thing you really give up in WordPress as Content Management System is photography placement options alongside the text in pages and posts.
So, this morning when I heard again that WordPress would be redesigned in the back-end, I got excited. The dev team has made very few backward steps over the years with the interface and things keep getting better and better. One thing they have managed to do consistently is work well for all types of blogs, whether that be single-blogger once a month posting or multi-author blogs with 25 posts a day.
