I am back with something really interesting to share with you all. As I was doing some research, I got to read some of the interesting facts about WordPress which hooked me to it till I did more and more searching. Well yes, I was enjoying the amazing knowledge I was getting.

So here comes my take on “the Fun Facts for WordPress”
1. Most Commonly used and oldest Content Management System:
You read it right. It’s the most popular CMS among all the CMSs. A maximum number of websites at the moment are powered by WordPress. Almost 5% of the entire internet is powered by WordPress. Apart from that; it’s also the oldest one. Its first ever version was released on May 27th, 2003. Even the Facebook and Twitter were launched after WordPress.
2. Top notch brands use WordPress:
I was amazed to read how many big names are using WordPress for different works. I’m just writing the names and you’ll get the shock …
Forbes, The New Yorker, Mashable, The Rolling Stones, Vogue, TED Blog, MTV News, Facebook Newsroom, NASA and many others. And obviously, how can I forget to mention whitehouse.gov, US Air Force, skype and IB among many other very very famous brand names.
This is the power of WordPress. If it can leave an impact on the public through these websites, then why not it will be helpful for others.
3. For freelancers:

There are endless opportunities.

As it’s the oldest CMS, all the queries, issues or any kind of question is available on its community with all types of solutions.
