For those of you who don’t stay up on Web design trends, the WordPress platform now powers the sites of more than 25% of the Internet. That percentage has been increasing year over year and our own sites have shifted from other technologies to WordPress. Our last remaining site is the unleash.com domain and it will be converted later this month.
We also work with a number of clients with Web sites and all but a couple of those sites are now powered by WordPress. Trying to check on all those sites can be a chore for me. So I was really excited when the folks at WordPress.com announced a new desktop app for managing all sites (see screenshot below).
Some of you are probably asking how this affects you. While it helps someone like me that manages many sites, it also helps a business that has only a single site. Using this software they can write a blog post, create a new page or edit an existing one, update plugins on the site, monitor traffic statistics and more. So I’ll definitely be recommending it to our clients as it can help them keep track of their site.
If you are creating sites in WordPress or your company simply has a WordPress-based site, get this free app and simplify management of your site or sites.
