I started off with a new business of trainings and wanted to build a professional looking website. I have a strong eye for design and have strong techie background but I have no knowledge of programming using css,html etc. To build my site, I tried almost all the free templates that looked good in the wordpress.com domain. I finally stuck to Twenty Fourteen and was able to build a very professional looking website using just the plain theme as it is without any customization capabilities as I used the free theme on wordpress.com . The site looked so good, I got my first order for website development for a startup company !!! :) You can look at my 2014 based site here [ link redacted, please do not post links in reviews. ]
This is my new entry into website building and in future 2014 would be remembered for giving me unexpected business opportunity. I have now moved to wordpress.org from wordpress.com for my website customer.
Instead of giving 5, I give it 4 for some of the limitations like margins around pages which I could not change. But it has added 5+ value to me.
