In case you missed it, Matt Mullenweg pointed out that PC World Magazine has highlighted WordPress in “New Tools Help Take Your Blog to the Next Level” with a very favorable review:
Top-flight bloggers are increasingly moving to WordPress, Automattic Productions’ no-cost, open-source blogging software. Unlike the basic blogging tools found in Blogger, Microsoft’s Windows Live Spaces, and Yahoo 360, WordPress offers tons of plug-ins and widgets for customizing your blog. One of my favorite WordPress features is its spam filter, which weeds out spam posted as comments. You can also make your blog private, allowing only the people you specify to read and comment on your postings.
But WordPress gives you more than a simple chronological Weblog: The program’s pages feature makes it a full-blown content-management system supporting complex Web sites. For example, WordPress templates let you keep your bio, contact info, or other static content easy for your blog visitors to access.
The article goes on to reassure readers that if the idea of all those WordPress Plugins, WordPress Themes, and WordPress Widgets are intimidating, then you can give WordPress.com a try, getting the power of WordPress without all the fuss and muss.
