One of the prin­ci­ple ad­van­tages of Word­Press is that you are in con­trol. Un­like re­mote-host­ed scripts such as Blog­ger and Live­Jour­nal, you host Word­Press on your own serv­er. In­stal­la­tion is very sim­ple, as is the con­fig­u­ra­tion. Un­like oth­er soft­ware pro­grams, there are not a mil­lion files to chmod nor are there dozens of tem­plates to edit just to get your site set up and look­ing the way you want.

Also, Blog pages in Word­Press are gen­er­at­ed on the fly when­ev­er a page is re­quest­ed, so you do not have mul­ti­ple archive pages clog­ging up your web space. Wait­ing for pages to re­build is a thing of the past be­cause tem­plate changes are made in scant sec­onds.

Word­Press is built fol­low­ing W3C stan­dards for XHTML and CSS, en­sur­ing that your site is more eas­i­ly ren­dered across stan­dards-com­pli­ant browsers. Oth­er browsers are sup­port­ed with a few hacks; it’s a re­al­i­ty of the web that hacks are nec­es­sary.

Ag­gre­ga­tor sup­port is built-in with a num­ber of stan­dard RSS con­fig­u­ra­tions al­ready done for you, as well as Atom. Fol­low­ing stan­dards makes your Word­Press site eas­i­er to man­age, in­creas­es its longevi­ty for fu­ture In­ter­net tech­nol­o­gy adop­tion, and helps give your site the widest au­di­ence pos­si­ble.
