I am sold to WordPress since the first time that I’ve installed it to use it for my personal blog. Now, many WordPress projects and experience later I still am. Whenever I or a client needs a CMS I go with WordPress because of how easy it is to set-up a WordPress blog and customize it to your likings.
With the coming of custom posts and taxonomies the possibilities are really endless. Add plugins to the mix and pretty much everything you can think of can be done with WordPress.
From itself WordPress is pretty good and covers a wide range of functionality. However, for some websites you just need some extra functionality. Well, I guess we’re lucky because at the time of writing there are over 12.500 free plugins for WordPress available.
I’ve developed a few WordPress plugins of my own. Most of these are developed out of personal need or the needs of a cliënt and are available for free download trough the WordPress repository.
