How Has WordPress Changed Your {Blogging} Life?

June 18th, 2009

WordPress has had a huge role to play in how we blog and how we let our thoughts out to the world in a matter of few seconds (with Quick Press) or minutes, however WordPress has definitely changed the way I look at blogging.

Not only is it very easy now, but it also has so many features in itself and those provided by plugins that make it even better, not to forget you can also decide how your blog looks by choosing from 1000s of free themes and customizing them without problems.

I have been using WordPress for almost 3 years now, and I definitely think it has changed the way I look at blogging, and has made it much more easier than ever, before WordPress I used Joomla for 6 months, however I definitely think switching to WordPress has changed everything for good.

The thing about WordPress that has changed my blogging life is that I can write and post my thoughts from practically anywhere and that makes my life much more easier when it comes to blogging, of course there are several other things that I love WordPress for, however this is the defining one for me.

What is that something in the WordPress platform that has made you change how you blog, you could be a new WordPress user or may have switched from a different platform, however everyone has something about WordPress that make them use it, what is yours?

It could be one thing, it could be ten, we would love to know them, use the comments form, write a blog post about it and tell the world how WordPress has changed your {blogging} life, don’t forget to tell us too through your comments.

    I like the fact it’s easy to customise the design and there are so many plugins to add extra features. That’s the advantage of having a large user community.

    WordPress has made blogging and having any website easy. You can manage and update it in a few minutes. The large community always offers support with issues, problems and techniques. Plugin developers are always developing new goodies for everyone and the user has the choice of what to use on their site.

    I suspect WP be be used for many years to come, all they have to do it keep improving it until it’s the ultimate platform :)

    WP’s most attractive feature is the fact that it’s completely open and free.

    WordPress has given me more headache than any other software I’ve been using.. It’s not that I don’t like the usability with it, but to get hacked each week because of security related bugs (regardless of what version you’re using) is driving me crazy.

    Dear Gods. Where do I begin?

    Thanks to WordPress I’ve been able to create, and maintain, a nicely organized writer’s blog that allows me to update readers via both RSS feed and Twitter. And do all this with minimal effort, meaning more time for writing.

    Thanks to WordPress have an easy way to keep my recipes together and share them with others.

    Thanks to WordPress I can keep my book of notes organized to the teeth on a thumbdrive.

    Lastly, thanks to WordPress, I was able to resurrect my old website (which hadn’t been touched in years due to the labor involved with a simple update), make it pretty with a theme from a bountiful collection, encourage interactivity, and create posts that not only range from full blogs to archives of tweets (I so love Twitter Tools) but can be automatically cross posted to all the social networks my friends and family hang out in.

    WordPress is getting better and better. I have used them for years. I used to dread the all too often updates, but now that has been made so much easier with automatic upgrades.

    The fact that there are so many users who create templates and update them, and all the great plugins that are created and it is all offered at no charge for those who use self hosted blogs. I use both the “free” blogs and self hosted blogs.

    There are so many items that set WP apart from other blogging platforms that it is difficult to pick out just one. So I will summarize some of my top reasons not already mentioned.

    WP blogs are easy to navigate with both static pages and archived posts that you can find by categories or tags. For the person just starting out with blogging there is a huge variety of templates to get you started and that will most likely meet your needs. Plugins and Widgets offer customization so you can make your blog look and do what you want.

    Thanks everyone who takes an active part in making my WordPress blogging life so much fun.

    I needed something that worked, I did not have to spend hours learning to use, or have a million features I would never use out of the box. I do not know how many different platforms I have used over the last decade or so, but I am finally feeling “at home” with WordPress.

    I still wait for the day the software becomes non-GPL. :(

    WordPress is great! I started out blogging (on Blogger) about a year ago. Previous to this I had a website, but found it difficult to maintain due to having many pages, the software necessary to create/edit pages and so on. I finally got around to switching to a hosted WP site and have not looked back. WP is definitely the way to go for those serious about blogging over the long haul.

    Not just with blogging (I like how you put that word in a parenthesis), but with managing any website in general.

    I’ve been able to create a simple photographers portfolio site, a multiple article news site and all sorts of flavors in-between.
    All with one thing – and with great ease and speed.

    (I hope that non of my clients discover this !)

    WordPress has allowed be, for many years, to place my thoughts in a beautiful and orderly form. I am absolutely in love with it, and I hope to add WP for work purposes. I wish only that I could take a class in it!

    I like how clean the application is. I’ve sifted through so many different forums, portals and CMS designs trying to find the one right to me and WordPress has out stripped them all in function, looks and ease of use.

    It’s amazing.

    WordPress has made blogging easier, fun, and rewarding. The platform may have some vulnerabilities like most open source softwares but these are manageable with the right tools and proper guidance. Migrating into WordPress from Blogger was definitely a good decision.

    I changed! But, WP changed even more!!! Can’t keep up… about getting old…….

  15. Ferdi (1 comments.) says:

    WordPress has made it possible for anyone to become an expert in their field and share that with the world. I think blogs are the future communities of the net and businesses should take note and capitalize on this wonderful phenomenon.

    After about a year of working with WordPress i was able to leave my full time job and work at home doing only WordPress installs and designs. I am a single father and i am now able to stay at home and work, and watch my lil girl grow up. Thamks WP ;)

    WordPress has made the blogging life a lot easier. I moved from Blogger to wordpress six months ago and since then, fell in love with wordpress. Not only is it easy to use, it is easy to maintain and customize.

    WordPress offered bloggers the ability to maintain their own blogs without any deep experince/bakgroud about web-designing, whether their blogs are self-hosted or free-hosted. ~ “Code is Poetry”

  19. Joomla Templates (1 comments.) says:

    I keep a foot in the Joomla! World and the Word Press World. I think the one thing I like best about WordPress is the ease of building templates for it. On the other hand, I am not so happy with the security issues.

    If only there were a security team and bug squad like the one over in…

    WordPress has changed so much more than just my blogging life :) I’m a professional designer and blogger so I see both sides of WordPress every day. Honestly though, it’s the one piece of software that has made blogging possible for me.
