We love WordPress. They’re flexible with a Google friendly nature and super easy to use. WordPress’s mission is to “democratise publishing, one website at a time.” And we think that’s pretty cool too.
By now WordPress has shaken their “free blog site” tag. While they still have the free offering, they’re much more than that. WordPress sites can be built using beautiful custom design and features. And in fact when done by a professional web designer, you’d be hard pressed to even know if it’s a WordPress site.
The features we love most about WordPress are their plugins. A plugin is an add-on feature that you can download for free or purchase on a subscription. Below is our top 5 (FREE) WordPress plugins, just plug in and go!
