As a Web Developer that focuses more on the front-end part of the website and my usual workflow involves HTML, CSS, JS, a little bit of back-end with the MEAN stack then I launch the site in beta. That being said, numerous of my customers have asked me if I could build blog-like sites for them and that got me thinking: I could learn how to use Wordpress and develop those sites for them faster. Do you think Wordpress is a good CMS?

I am using WordPress without any knowledge on HTML, CSS or JS.If had knowledge on HTML, CSS or JS, I would have developed better sites. You see I can use Wordpress without any programming knowledge, this is the best thing about wordpress. Another benefit is availability of themes and plugins. Since wordpress is the most used CMS, there are hundreds of thousands of themes and plugins available for free.

Wordpress is a great content management system. I'm actually working on two projects at the moment and one is a directory website. I've used Wordpress to build it as it just makes everything so easy to manage. I bought a ready-made template for the WordPress site as I'm not too good at developing things for WordPress. The theme in addition to WordPress makes it almost perfect because I was able to release the site straight away without having to do too much work. All I had to do was change a few settings, and add proper content to the site and then publish it.

I don't know anyone who uses static websites anymore, but I'm sure they're out there. Instead, everyone wants a blog from WordPress - and even people do want a static site, they're probably using WordPress to make it. However, though, does that seem like laziness?

You could use Wordpress to create a blog for your clients but when in it comes to sophisticated website that needs strong security such as Paypal or facebook I think you should not use CMS to build that kind of website. You need to learn about web frameworks, which helps you develop your web better and attain the mission and vision of your client's website. But if your just want to display their ideas on a static web page then use the stated popular and mostly used CMS.
