Why Wordpress?

Q: What do CNN, Time Magazine, TED, Russell Brand, The Rolling Stones and Nicole Kidman have in common?

A: Easy! They all have WordPress websites!

There are over 60 million WordPress websites in existence worldwide, including many by high profile companies, blogs and celebrities; in fact, the website you are looking at right now is built on WordPress!

WordPress began as an open-source blogging platform in 2003 and since then, it has evolved into an incredibly versatile, powerful and easy-to-use content management system (CMS) with a huge active community behind it. I've found it to be one of the most intuitive platforms for clients to learn how to use and am an expert at creating custom WordPress and WooCommerce eCommerce websites to suit any requirement.
