Just think back a few years ago about how hard it would be to setup a complex blogging site or CMS of your own. In many cases you would need to hire your own design team and programmers. With the release of WordPress, everything changed. Millions of new blogs are going live every week and that is all thanks to the power of WordPress. This amazing free software is powering some of the multi-million dollar web sites online such as TechCrunch and PerezHilton. Who would have thought something so important and influential would be free?

In the infographic below provided by Pingdom.com we can see how much WordPress impacts the Technorati Top 100 blogs on the internet.

It’s safe to say WordPress is the platform of choice in the blogging and CMS world.
