WordPress is the world’s most popular content management system.

If that’s not impressive, WordPress is also used on over 40% of CMS-based websites – leading the market of DIY CMS websites by a wide margin.
Here’s why it’s so popular.
Of course, WordPress isn’t perfect and does have it’s drawbacks.
