However, when it comes to features, Wordpress is the clear winner. Because Wordpress has so many designers and programmers building tools and providing services, they offer numerous advanced features (too many to name here) that really are fantastic! I like the flexibility of these features but learning to use these features is tricky for those that may be a bit more technically challenged. Being familiar with technical terminology and jargon will make it a bit easier to create a Wordpress site. However, if you get stuck, hiring WordPress specialists to build or maintain your site is gonna cost ya.
When it comes to blogging platforms, WordPress is probably the best open source CRM (content management system). Again, it has a lot more features for blogging than Weebly. However, I can't help but come back to the simplicity of Weebly and ease-of-use. When you want to start a blog with Weebly, you literally drag and drop a page called "blog" and start blogging. That's all there is to it.
So, if you know what the term open source means or CRM, it's likely that you'll be able to use WordPress. If not, you may want to check out Weebly. Both have their strengths. Large businesses will want the flexibility that WordPress allows but small business owners, artists, musicians and casual bloggers will love the simplicity that Weebly offers when it comes to creating and maintaining their own site.
Did I mention that you can host your site on Weebly for free?
