Do you remember the old papers? Delivered to your doorsteps every morning? Big format, difficult to hold and handle? I used to love the smell of fresh coffee and printed paper. But they all had one big flaw: by the time you read the newspaper, the news isn’t all that new. All printed editions are losing the war on the Internet because they can’t keep up with the dynamism of the online environment.

Over the time, WordPress has established itself as a great platform for any website. The biggest players in the publishing industry are using WordPress, sites like The Verge, TechCrunch, Forbes, Reuters, The New York Times and many others managed to gather millions of readers.
