Ok, so we’ve established that WordPress can feel hard to use at times. But here’s the important thing:

Just because WordPress can be complex, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t use it.

There are lots of things in life that have a learning curve but pay off in a big way. Learning the basics of cooking takes some time, but being able to prepare your own meals is worth it. You’ll be healthier, more independent, save money, etc.

It’s the same with WordPress;

With any website builder, you’re always going to be stuck in a balancing act between flexibility and simplicity. If you want the absolute simplest tool, you’re going to have to sacrifice flexibility. If you didn’t, the tool wouldn’t feel quite so simple anymore!

The reason why WordPress is still a good choice is that it strikes the best balance for most people. There’s a reason why it powers over 37% of all the websites on the Internet.

While there is a bit of a learning curve, WordPress still makes it possible for anyone to build virtually any type of website without needing to know anything about code. Even if you have no idea what HTML or PHP are, WordPress will still let you build:

  • Blogs
  • Portfolios
  • Business websites
  • eCommerce stores
  • Forums
  • Membership sites
  • Online courses
  • Etc.

Being able to do all of that yourself, without needing to pay expensive developers or get a new degree, is worth investing a few weekends in getting over WordPress’ learning curve.
