WordPress isn’t just for blogging anymore. A lot of clients are choosing to use WordPress as their foundation for their sites because it is easy for them to be able to do the editing themselves and not hire a designer to do them. Or they can do what my clients do and hire me to design and set up the site and then I will maintain your site for you for a low monthly fee. 

Some love the new WP 5.0 and some don’t. For me, after using WordPress for the past 10 years, I love the original editor. One of my favorite WordPress themes that I use is called Divi by Elegant Themes. Divi has some wonderful features that a lot of my clients love. One of which is the built-in slideshow feature. Most themes include a plugin like Layer Slider and then six months later you can’t update the plugin because they want you to purchase it. That’s how they make their money.

Divi has some awesome tools that are not utilized by all clients. For example, they have a plugin that is called Monarch. Monarch puts in the social follow buttons. It takes some time to set up but its worth it in the end as you are going to get a lot of readers because once someone discovers your site if they love your content they will share it within their media. 

I could go on and on about Divi and why you should use WordPress but for my first new blog post I am going to keep this one short. In the future, I am planning to have future blog posts about some tips and tricks about web designing that I have learned over the years to help new designers and even old designers. So stay tuned. I hope you enjoyed this article.
