This is by far the best blogging software I’ve tried. Tons of plugins and a brand new – very clean admin.

If your looking for a blog this is the way to go. There are TONS of themes and plugins available online and through the wordpress website.

Some of the other blog software programs I’ve tried include Typepad, Movable Type, Live Journal and Joomla.

WordPress blows them all out of the water!!

It rocks. I tried a number of the other packages and finally settled on WordPress. That was three years ago and it just keeps getting better and better.

WordPress is my first choice for generating not only weblogs but also cms systems. It comes with a huge range of plugins and widgets, nearly for all problems there is a solution, either searching a vast community or the well written documentation.
One great plus is the ability to modify nearly everything without the change of any core-script. It´s oop structure is so well organized that even people without a strong programming background are able to solve very specified problems by thereself.

Review

After using Blogger for about a year I switched over to wordpress on my own domain. I wish I’d have switched earlier. Having a full blown installation where you can customize or add just about anything is just about as good as it gets.

I love the fact that the content and look and feel are separated so that it’s easy to try themes, same thing with plugins. They are simple to install and use for the most part, some of them are junk but at least with Word Press there are lots of options for good quality.

One thing I’d like to see in WP going forward is some way to backup all plugin / theme options so that you can copy them to a new blog if you wanted too.

I am using pretty much the same plugins for many sites, would be nice to be able to to clone all settings as easy as it is to copy the plugins directory.

If you are still using another CMS or a shared installation you will love WP full.
