I'm using WordPress for almost 2 years now. Used to write the html/php code myself and spent most of my time on code and not on content.
Tried different CMS/Blog systems but nothing like WP.
Today I have plugins collection, most of it premium and all of them are great extensions that helps me manage my business.
my website is a local locksmith business and without WP I don;t think I would be in business in this competitive market!
