Most websites nowadays look like blogs rather than the Flash-heavy tacky websites of yore. Twitter identifies itself as a “microblogging” platform with the way the latest tweets always come first before any past tweets. Facebook itself has made its Facebook updates and timeline more Twitter like in its latest updates. Instagram also follows a blogging platform in putting the latest updates first. Meanwhile, WordPress is one of the best website making softwares or applications nowadays. The reason for that is because it follows the Web 2.0 trend of using the blog platform as its go-to interface for all websites. Gone are the days of frames versus no frames or following every last URL link or visiting the links page of a given site. Sites are more about giving you the latest updates every time, which is why WordPress is your best bet for web development in the 2010s.
The Blog Format Is King
* Experienced web designers all over the globe praise Word Press for its modular or template-based design because it makes a website more scalable and easy to change when new technology comes along and redefines yet again how sites are viewed in the future. The blog-based design paradigm that WordPress follows also allows instant archiving and aggregation of new content so that they can be viewable and accessible by anyone who cares enough about them.
* Aside from ease of use, Word Press sites have become hugely popular (with their growth continuously accelerating as we speak) because you can modify them in light of your stats. If a page or an article of yours is getting huge amounts of traffic, you’ll immediately know about it through the stats included with your WordPress web development kit and content management system.
* You can promote that page, make more topics in the same vein as that page, or advertise that page on your other newer pages for more clicks. Back in 2011, WordPress was being used by 22% of all new websites. In 2014, 18.9% of all websites (not just new ones but all the ones in existence) are Word Press sites. In other words, a whopping 74,652,825 sites out there are dependent on this platform.
