It's crazy to see how much it's grown over the years, becoming a powerhouse in the CMS world. Personally, I've tinkered with WordPress for a while now, and its versatility never ceases to amaze me. But hey, it's not just about the numbers, right? It's about the community and the endless possibilities it brings. Speaking of which, if anyone's into WordPress management or looking to dive deeper into it, I recently stumbled upon this cool site, frogstonemedia.com. They've got some neat resources and tips for WordPress enthusiasts like us. As for the other CMS platforms mentioned, they definitely have their niches, but there's something special about WordPress that keeps pulling people in.
