Why I use WordPress.com (1 of 6)

I switched from Blogger a couple years ago because I wanted a little more of an independent feel and appreciated that WordPress can be used as a simple content management system. In other words, it could be used by any church to start a free, simple and well designed website. I continue to appreciate the innovation from WordPress and steady new updates.
