Oh the WordPress love!
Cost – Free themes (although when I use a good theme I always send a donation to the theme creator) My 2 latest WP sites where for a company I consult for. I set up and had fully functional WP sites, complete with posts, in under a week at a tenth of what it’s cost them to set up and launch their traditional site. Not to mention that it took them months to code the new site.
Easy install – All major hosting companies have Fantastico or some other one click install option.
Variety of Themes – Although to get some of the really unique ones you do have to pay but even they are inexpensive, as in less than I spend on coffee outings in a month
SEO – No brainer there, easy SEO
Support – I had a problem installing WP on a new host over the weekend and I sent a tweet out. Within minutes I was Skyping with a fellow from Ireland who helped my fix the problem in no time at all. That has happened to me on several occasions.Plus WP TV and the WP forums of course and random YouTube how to videos. Size does have it’s advantages.
Scales well – For those like me who can’t code past Hello World it just works. For those who do know what they’re doing.. well they can do some amazing things.Same for small simple blog to fully functional website. Your site can grow.
Portability – I love that I can completely change my theme and focus without losing my posts. Over the years I’ve bounced between Blogger, Edublogs and WordPress more than a few times. All my posts are still available.
Plugins - I swear there as many plugins for WP as there are app for the iPhone.
