I was in the back end of Dallas Sports Fans this morning and noticed this little nugget in the WordPress News Feed. Over at ma.tt, Matt Mullenweg’s Blog-Site there was a link to an article on Why WordPress? Naturally I decided to swim over and have a read of this article: Why WordPress? 21 of the WordPress Community Answer.

Back at the very start? The thing that probably made me choose WordPress over Joomla or anything else was how user-friendly WordPress was. It was so easy to get started with it, anyone can do it!
