    The best things about Wordpress.

    I am sort of new to this whole blogging game. I have been doing it for about 3 months now. In that time I have figured out that Wordpress is the best user interface for my blogging needs. For you other wordpress users, I am wondering why you feel Wordpress best Suits your website.

    I guess it is because it is much more user friendly and simple to deploy, wordpress was developed with blogs in mind and most bloggers aren't technical, where they would prefer a simple and easy program that they can DIY themselves.
