Those of you that have followed yourprogrammingnetwork.co.uk for a while will know that a few months back we dramatically overhauled our site to the current version you see today. Many changes where made but by far the biggest was the new website has been built using WordPress. Reportedly 17% of all web content is now created through WordPress and, after designing the same site both from scratch and using WordPress, I wanted to take the time to discuss reasons you should or shouldn’t follow suit and use WordPress for your own sites or blogs.
WordPress is incredibly quick and easy to set up, after developing several sites in WordPress you are quickly able to knock a simple website or blog together in 10-15 minutes. This is particularly useful when showing off to potential clients!
Sometimes people fall into the trap of just using standard themes and not customising them, making their sites look bland and unoriginal. Ensure you personalise your site as much as possible to make it stand out from the crowd.
