  • Atish, I’ve been blogging with WordPress for the past 1 1/2 years and I feel comfortable with it. But I still have to learn a lot with that and trying to do so.

  • WordPress go way beyond blogging. Actually this trend started 2-3 years ago with so called “application themes” that overwrite part of taxonomies and functionality. WordPress lack a bit of
    “content construction” capabilities, but in general is one of the most powerful CMS after Drupal and Joomla.
