One of the biggest reasons I like to use WordPress for my web projects is because I feel like it gives me the freedom to do whatever I want.
I’ve tried using other website builders, but they always seem to fall short.
Don’t get me wrong, they can get the job done.
But when you’ve seen what WordPress is capable of it’s hard to be satisfied with anything else.
The Four Freedoms
WordPress is really just a bunch of code split up into files and folders.
You put that code on a server, connect it to a database and voilà!
A new WordPress site is born.
And just like every person is born in their country with certain freedoms, a user of WordPress is given freedoms as well.
Four to be exact.
- The freedom to run the program, for any purpose.
- The freedom to study how the program works, and change it to make it do what you wish.
- The freedom to redistribute.
- The freedom to distribute copies of your modified versions to others.
You don’t get these freedoms with other website builders.
They keep their code locked down and only let you play inside their world if you follow their rules.
Nothing wrong with that.
I just like my freedom with WordPress.
