Unlike most developers, I don’t hate PHP. Not that I don’t want to move on to something newer, but my new site is hosted on Cyberpanel, which has WordPress installer built in. It’s simple. Just a few clicks and I am up and running. When they have Ghost installer as part of Cyberpanel, I might move again then.
According to W3Techs, WordPress powers 35% of all the websites on the Internet. That’s quite impressive. And it has certainly improved a lot over the years. Auto updates, annual themes, ecosystem to extend it well beyond standard CMS needs, etc, etc.
I am not a writer as such. I just want this site to be an extended version of my tweets. I try hard not to write anything too edgy and stay focused on tech and business (not even economics which are often too political).
