Using a blogging platform for a Web site?
So, (drumroll), we’ve decided to go with WordPress.
Why? In short, it is the better overall, long-term option. More reasons/details to come in a future post.
I’d like to thank Sean Blanda from Temple University. Sean’s insights and advice — via his blog, a session at the CMA conference in NYC that our news editor and adviser attended and an e-mail response to visuals editor Will Wooten — helped us feel more confident in our final decision.
Some background: I started reading Sean’s blog during spring break, particularly intrigued with the posts about the Temple News‘ experience with WordPress. Ironically, a day or two after reading some old posts, Will e-mailed me and brought up the idea of using WP after doing his own separate research.
Besides Temple, the Sagebrush at University of Nevada Reno also uses WordPress.
