    A new dimension with WordPress

    17 November 2009

    It’s nearly a year since this site was launched. Even though I have been designing websites since 2001 it was the first one I built using WordPress. WordPress is an incredibly flexible system which started life as blogging platform but has been developed so that it can now be used as a CMS (Content Management System).

    Since launching this website in 2008 I have completed two other websites – www.dolphinschool.org.uk and www.roots-conference.co.uk – using WordPress. This has enabled these clients to add, update and delete content.

    Over the coming months I will be working on three other websites, all of which will utilise the power and flexibilty of WordPress.

    As someone who is primarily a web designer, WordPress has enabled me to be able to design and develop websites which are dynamic – there is no way I would be able to build a content management system from the ground up! This is good for me and good for my clients.
