What is WordPress?
It’s a free, open-source application contributed to by a community of professional volunteers and developers.

So, why use it?
It’s uncluttered and stripped to the bare minimum. The navigation sits to the left and you’re able to collapse/expand this panel to maximise real estate for the main content areas.
You can easily create new pages, posts and categories. Choose from a set of pre-designed templates for your pages to help create unique content. You’re also able to take control and order content by priority as well as import any media such as imagery or video.
Widgets are custom content areas, usually dynamic and pull information from a database. You’re able to order these as you see fit on each of the pages. Some examples are Flickr images or Twitter feeds etc.
Unlike some Content Management Systems, WordPress is fully SEO-friendly and quickly gets picked up on major search engines.
