It didn't take long for small businesses to catch on to the ease of use and low cost of using WordPress for business blogs and even for small business websites.
WordPress is now the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of websites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.
With WordPress, publishing to the Web is about as cheap and easy as using a word processor. No longer are small businesses beholden to the media or other intermediaries when it comes to getting published. WordPress levels the playing field for online visibility, enabling small businesses to compete with huge organizations to be found online.
