Note: Needs Updated

From what I have been researching and seen it seems that WordPress is moving into the CMS market. That is not only is it used for blogs anymore but people are using it to do other types of sites. Starting a wordpress site is simple and it has many plugins available to do many different things. The one thing that you have to do when using wordpress is to keep the site updated at all times. If you do not you could become victim to some automated spamming/hacking bot or even something worse. A real human.

I generally use wordpress to take notes and keep things organized into sections. I like the fact that if I need to know something that I do not have to go around digging through data and can see it in a clear form. I hope that in the end posting my ideas openly will start something too.
