While discussing the WordPress industry and the rest of the business world, my friend Ajay reminded me of why “WordPress Expert” is not a real title. His comment made me think about the misconception of “expertism” that seems to be getting popularity around the WordPress experts who offer their services: The issue with the WordPress industry is that anyone can be an expert because more often than not, they are dealing with those who aren’t experts or regular users wanting a blog. Let’s take a step back and think about WordPress. What is WordPress? WordPress started as a blogging platform more than 10 years ago, and the active community grew it to be a platform that powers about 24% of the World Web. Nowadays WordPress is being used as a CMS, and even as an application platform. In a few months the WordPress Restful API will probably get in the WordPress Core, which would make it incredibly easy to run all sorts of applications – even mobile apps and ones not written in PHP – interacting with WordPress as a separate platform. There are plenty of use cases for WordPress, which is what makes it one of the most powerful web platforms that has ever been built. What Can You Do With WordPress?
