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

From: 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.
