One of the important things when it comes to running your own website is having the freedom to customise it to look and function in the exact way you want it to. The fantastic thing about WordPress is that almost every theme allows you to customise it via the customisation tab in the WordPress dashboard. This gives you the ability to customise fonts, colours, banners, headers and anything else you can imagine. On top of appearance, WordPress also boasts hundreds of plugins that can do almost anything you are interested in – from adding pop-up or subscription boxes to increasing your SEO reach, there is always a plugin that is there to help you.

A large percentage of WordPress themes come already mobile optimised. This means that you can save thousands on a custom built website that is crafted to work with mobile browsers. Using a mobile responsive theme ensures that your website looks amazing, regardless of what device it is being viewed on. Furthermore, mobile optimised websites are favoured by Google, ensuring that you don’t lose out on any SEO with a non-responsive website.

With that said, blogging still remains an crucial aspect of WordPress’s CMS. If you are looking to grow your site with amazing content, then you definitely need to be using WordPress.
