Five good reasons for Wordpress

Wordpress Deutschland is asking for five good reasons to use Wordpress. It isn't hard for me to answer this question:

  • It generates valid XHTML. Not every Blog or CMS system is able to do so.
  • Own themes can be created easily and the time needed to get into the theme creation is much shorter than by other systems.
  • No overloaded standard installation. The needed functions can be integrated with many plugins. Even own plugins can be developed and integrated easily.
  • The interface is easy to use. After the installation of other systems I often did not now what to do when I logged into the admin menu.
  • Last, but not least, it is for free and open source.
