If you are looking to build a website, WordPress is unquestionably one of the very best tools to use. It started off as a blogging platform, but developers have evolved for us the ability to create any type of website you can think of.
The power WordPress gives us to publish anything we want is a huge new paradigm shift in humanity.
Has an individual or community ever had such power?
Fueling more than a third of the web, WordPress is one of the most visible open source successes.
Flexible and Powerful
Anything as big as WordPress must be pretty flexible. This kind of flexibility can only be found in an open source and decentralized culture like the one WordPress is built upon. Similar to the Linux operating system (OS) and Apache web server, all of which the web is built upon, development happens by individuals and communities all working toward a better product.
With nearly 60k plugins, nearly 10k free themes as well as lots of premium ones and now even the ability to create patterns within pages and posts, you have complete control of the design and function to build whatever kind of site you want.
Easy to Use
WordPress is easy to use, but it isn’t built specifically to be easy to use. If ease of use is your primary concern, then other platforms like Wix or SquareSpace might sincerely be better for you.
Let me say it again though, WordPress is easy to use.
Many hosting companies make it very easy to sign up and get publishing right away. Immediately, you will find a well laid out dashboard where you can start publishing and editing your site.
Can WordPress Be a Hive Front End?
The open and decentralized power of Web3 is here now. Can we fully implement a way to use Hive to run our WordPress sites?
There are a few people exploring this.
What if WordPress is the ultimate way to decentralize Hive front ends?
Huge Open Source Market
How can there be such an amazing economy around something that is free for anyone?
That is easy: There are hundreds, if not thousands of people using WordPress to serve and support the power available through your imagination and WordPress.
Open source and decentralized tools are creating a free, robust and peaceful new paradigm. We would love to hear from you about how you are using these tools or if you need some guidance, we may be able to help.
