Getting to know Wordpress...
I do web design (mostly the graphic part, not the development), but my heart lies with communication and marketing. I hate to lose time on reinventing wheels. If I need to design and develop a site from scratch I will always use CMS Made Simple™ because HTML and CSS are cleanly separated from the PHP stuff.
However, if blogging is the main goal for a web site, I love to use WP. And why sweat over a design, search for additional plugins for hours, if so many talented people have fantastic templates for sale here on Themeforest!
As long as I don’t have to go “under the hood” except for CSS, I am a happy camper. I admit I am a bit intimidated by the mingling of PHP and HTML.
