Why WordPress and not SharePoint?

The estimated reading time for this post is 0 minutes

Many people have said to me “your using WordPress for your blog but you’re a SharePoint Consultant” and my response is typical “but why must use SharePoint – I guess you also have a problem with me using a Mac?”.

Yes I do work with SharePoint – in fact it goes beyond just working with it but we won’t go there. I have developed websites for many years and typical chosen to build these on the WordPress platform – it’s adaptable and responsive to the differing requirements and yet it doesn’t need weeks of custom development. Not only that but it was built for blogging and the user interface is more in tune to writing blog posts. Secretly I knew if I used SharePoint for my blog it would become more of a job than a hobby with all the extra work it would need.

SharePoint is just not the blogging platform for me – let’s just say when I’m blogging I want the night off!
