The internet is not what it used to be when I started out online about 12 years ago. It is almost unrecognizable. What worked for running an online business 12 years ago doesn’t necessary work now.
I started my first website on Google Blogger and within a month moved to a self-hosted WordPress site. Best decision ever.
Now in 2018, fixing to enter 2019, there are so many more options – Wix, SquareSpace, Medium, Shopify, Tumblr, and more. They are all viable options depending on your goals.
“If someone came to me and asked what platform they should use for their new site, there’s only a couple of situations were WordPress would be my first choice.”
What? Use something other WordPress? I’ve been using WordPress exclusively since 2011 – but I agree, depending on what you want to accomplish online, WordPress is not necessarily the best option for everyone.
What do you think? Would you choose WordPress?
