    ‘Social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Tumblr, rather than being threats to blogging, are, instead, “the start of the funnel,” that eventually drives “tons of traffic” to blogs.’

    Often it works the other way: The blog is used as a jumping-off point or hub for social-networking activities. Many of today’s bloggers (especially personal bloggers) regard their blogs as “social media,” not as “editorial media,” and they put great emphasis on the “blogging community.”

    In any case, the term “blog” is nearly as broad in its meaning as the term “book” or “film,” so it makes sense that some blogs are editorially-driven, some are socially-driven, others are marketing-driven, and so on.

    I wonder what percentage of WP users are actually creating websites…not blogging, but creating somewhat static websites for their enterprises? That’s the case with us. We wanted a website completely under our control (and at very little cost). We are not coders. There are tools out there so anyone can create a web presence without knowing HTML. We moved from Blogger to WordPress because of the previously mentioned flexibility and personalization opportunities. Thank you Matt!

    I’m a huge fan of WordPress because it’s so user-friendly. I am not a developer and I don’t want it to take hours for me to make a small tweak. With hundreds of plugins I can customize the look and feel of my website and manage a lot of it on my own. I think that once you get serious about blogging (or even if you build your website in it) WordPress just seems the best option for most people.

    WordPress is still really underappreciated considering how many of the top sites are based on wordpress. It is the dominant cms and it wont be going anywhere anytime soon. This was a great interview with Mullenweb
