Lucky for us, Mindshare Labs has been creating CMS websites built with WordPress since version 1 of the WordPress platform. So, six years and many point releases later, we are really good at using it. The rest of the web development comunity has certainly noticed how easy WordPress makes it to develop feature-rich easy to update websites. Many web teams are now hurrying to catch up. A recent study conducted by Pingdom compared web analytics stats from 2009 to 2012 from the top 100 blogs and found WordPress to be by far the platform of choice in terms of usage and growth:

Matt Mullenweg, the founding developer of WordPress thinks this trend will continue. Pingdom contacted him and he told them that he expects even more from WordPress in the coming years:

”The last few years we’ve really focused on both the usability and flexibility of WordPress, which has resulted in accelerating growth in both big and small sites. I expect even higher adoption among the largest sites and blogs over the next year.”

From the smallest blog to largest corporate site, WordPress is considered by many to be the ideal CMS solution. Although there are hundreds of CMS platforms to choose from, for the vast majority of people, WordPress is the way forward because of its adaptability and its immense community of users, designers and developers.
