When it comes to Content Management Systems, there really is no comparison, WordPress dominates. I realize with this comment I am going to receive backlash from Joomla and Drupal users, but in my defense; this infographic from Graphs.net supports my reasoning.
WordPress holds 53.8% of market share where as Joomla, a stiff competitor to Wordpress in terms of popularity holds only 9.2% market share. The WordPress Plugin directory comprises of 19,017 plug-ins that are available for free and these plugins are downloaded over 285,000,000 by various WordPress users.
As a web developer, WordPress offers me the freedom to make the customizations I need to make, as well as, the ease of editing for my clients. There is nothing easier, than WordPress' plugin directory - it allows for a person with little to no web experience to search, click and install a new feature for their website. Also, with 100,000 WordPress site being built on a daily basis - it demonstrates the ease and reliability of this CMS.
Let's not forget about the social aspects of WordPress. With this platform having its own "community" - it is very easy to learn new methods and strategies to implement for your business' website. Sharing ideas and plugin tweaks are a norm on WordPress.org, plus the support your receive from developers is astounding. With amazing plugins like, "Tweet Old Posts", which keeps your older content in circulation for more views and a greater reach on Twitter - and the Yoast SEO Plugin which assists with your search rankings and it already implements Google's new Authorship feature - your website is always on the cutting edge of social media implementation.
WordPress may not be the choice for everyone, but it definitely needs to be considered when choosing your CMS and website platform.
I am very fortunate to have the family I do. My mom and dad are great parents who gave me the opportunities to be successful, even when I did not deserve them. My dad, who passed away from cancer; is my idol, his work ethic was unreal, and he overcame so much in his lifetime.
Next, I am blessed to have Laura as my wife. She allows me to work on my goals as a professional, and is very supportive in everything I do. She is my best friend and my best times are spent with her. We have two wonderful children. They amaze me everyday in their development. I only hope that I can give them the same opportunities my parents gave me.
Finally, there are few people in life that get to do what they love everyday - and fortunately, God has given me that chance. I am a small business owner and my company, Socially Acceptable, allows me to help other businesses grow and develop customer loyalty through social media management. There is great joy in seeing other businesses succeed and reach their goals through my company's assistance and strategies.
