What is WordPress?
In non-techie terms, it’s the easiest and most powerful website content management system (or CMS) available today. Created in 2003 as a way for people to publish blogs, WordPress soon became a full blown Open Source content management system, which means there are hundreds of people all over the world working on it to keep it cutting edge, robust and secure. Another attraction is how easy it is to maintain and update a WordPress site. After your website has been created, just some simple training and you can be sending out the latest news or making changes to your business information without having to pay developers and wait for them to respond.
