WordPress – what is it used for?

The days when WordPress was only used for blogging are long gone. With the release of version 3.0 in 2010, it became a full-fledged content management system (CMS). Since then, WordPress has seen tremendous growth in popularity. It is now used on more than 40% of all websites on the Internet! [1]. Almost half of these are online stores based on WooCommerce, the current standard of the e-commerce industry.
