As usual, the whole world is doing what Beyonce is doing. The Rolling Stones. Usain Bolt. TechCrunch. charity:water. Even Harvard Law School counts as a Bey follower!
What trend is Queen Bey setting now, my friends?
Using WordPress to build her website.
Today, nearly 1 in 4 websites are built on WordPress. Over 409 million people view more than 15.8 billion pages on WordPress each month, and WordPress users produce about 43.7 million new posts and 58.8 million new comments every single month! Estimates show that there are currently more than 60 million distinct websites that are using WordPress active on the web today.
WordPress is a big deal. As big of a deal (dare I say it?) as Mrs. Carter.
In case you’re not familiar (don’t worry, that’s why we’re here!), WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) that allows users to create and manage blogs and websites. Okay, okay, so you know that a lot of bloggers start out using WordPress? But you might not know that some of the biggest names out there, including brands and websites you visit every day, trust and love WordPress to keep their sites up and running and looking stellar.
