Creating a Website

It has been almost a decade since I created a website. Today, the “Friends of BJP” website will be officially launched. How times have changed. Using WordPress with a free theme and a little assistance from a couple colleagues, we got the site to look reasonably like we wanted. And as I used many of the WordPress features for the website, I was very impressed by the capabilities of what can be done.

Creating a website (albeit a blog-like look) is so simple nowadays, especially for content that is updated frequently. A far cry from what it used to be 10 or so years ago! Makes me wonder why more corporates don’t just use blogging platforms like WordPress (it actually can do a lot more) or complete content management platforms like Drupal for managing their websites. And keeping them updated regularly.
