This section is a bit techie  so feel free to skip straight to the Bajan Things blog.

The BajanThings website uses the self-hosted version of WordPress: a free and open-source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) combined with Bruce Wampler’s Weaver Xtreme WordPress theme and the premium Xtreme Plus plugin.

According to W3Tech, as of June 2016 WordPress is used by more than 26.4% of the Alexa Top 10 million websites.  To put that number in perspective 55% of these Alexa Top 10 million websites do NOT use a CMS.   Of the 45% of the websites that DO use a CMS, WordPress dominates with a 60% market share.  The next in line are Joomla and Drupal with a 6.1% and  4.9% share of the CMS market.  WordPress rocks and is the clear market leader by a long long way!  (Click here if you are interested in the W3Tech methodology.)

One of the reasons for the popularity of WordPress is that for such a complex product it is really easy to use, its intuitive and you don’t need specialist software installed on your computer.  All you need is an internet connection.  When used with Bruce Wampler’s Weaver Xtreme WordPress theme the look and feel of the website can be changed without the need to go under the bonnet and write custom code.  Weaver Xtreme also has an awesome support forum.

BajanThings is hosted by SiteGround, who are headquartered in Sofia, Bulgaria who we highly rate.  They are a leading WordPress blog hosting company, with absolutely amazing customer service and support.

If you are looking at setting up a blog or even a website, you should consider using WordPress and hosting it with SiteGround.  Ask Burts about how easy WordPress is to use.
