Is Wordpress really the way to go?

    I've been seeing many Wordpress users here, and would love to know the advantages over any other blogging platform.

    Is it the ease of use, or quick startup, or are there other reasons?

    The reason I ask is because I am going to start my own review blog, a serious one, and then some niche sites to generate money along with links to my main blog, and would like to start on the right foot.

    both of the reasons you just stated!

    honestly, it doesn't take long to get the hang of. there's countless themes and plugins available, and again as you said very quick to get started. that's the reason i mostly like it.

    there's trillions of resources and people that can help when you have a problem.

    also, knowing how to code isn't necessary. it's great for newbies. however knowing some code is also good, and allows you to do more customization.

    It's versatile, powerful and Google loves it, what more do you need? :) Go for it!

    I use it for every single one of my sites, it's so adaptable that it's become so much more than a blogging platform.
    Don't know what I'd do without it tbh

    I agree with everything that's already been said. The variety of plugins alone makes it best in class IMHO.

    I'd say all the seo plugins etc are a big bonus as well.

    Yes, just as you stated. The ease of use, and some of the time the most popular.

    There are countless ways to easily create WordPress sites, not just blogs. Nearly anything you can think of can be done within WordPress.

    Here is an example of a WordPress site that a lot of people wouldn't even realize is WordPress. Not a bad looking site for less than 2 hours of work.
