Don’t be surprised, It’s WordPress: 15 Amazing Websites Powered by WordPress

Recently I attended Word Camp NYC 2012, at the conference dedicated to nothing but WordPress I was amazed at how many people still had no idea what a powerful tool WordPress is. So this prompted me to go through WordPress showcase and find some of the best and brightest word press site and share it with my readers here at TheCareerMag.com and on my site www.akzmedesigns.com.

Don’t be surprised, It’s WordPress: 15 Amazing Websites Powered by WordPress

From: www.akzmedesigns.com/blogby Akilah Thompkins-Robinson Owner and Lead Creative at AKZMe Designs, LLC.

I’ve been using WordPress for almost 4 years initially like most users I used it as a blogging platform, then eventually as my skills grew and WordPress grew I quickly learned that it is so much more than a blog. WordPress is a powerful CMS (Content Management System) and can be used to build websites, Forum sites, online stores and many other online functions. To date I have moved 95% of my clients websites to a WordPress platform, mostly due to it’s ease of use for my client and me, the out of the box SEO functionality, and most important it’s scalability. I can easily build a basic site for a client today and as their business grows add a blog, a store, or any other functionality with out the extra time of and cost of rebuilding the site. Although WordPress has become a proven contender in building a solid online presence I still find users who thinks its just a blog platform, only for beginners, and small projects; but with the right tools and designer ;) WordPress can support the most powerful website.
