A little Gotham. A little WordPress. A lot of classy navy. What’s classier than navy? When I say “Navy blazer,” what do you think of? Come on, get your mind of out of the gutter. You thought of a classy guy in a classy navy blazer (or a girl who is confident enough to sport a navy blazer). Or maybe your mind went straight to the image of a classy navy t-shirt. I know I’ve convinced you. You want this one. You want it like that classy guy (or girl) in the navy blazer wants success. Navy. It’s like sailing, if sailing were a color.
You took a marketing class right? If not, it’s ok. I took enough in four years for both of us. And if there is one thing I learned (closer to the actual number than you might expect), it’s that in marketing, you’re supposed to “think outside the box.” Same goes for the web. But when it comes to WordPress, the blogging box is like the fanciest (but still beautifully minimal), coolest (but never just trendy), most awesomest box ever. But then you can think outside the blog too, with all the awesome CMS goodness! It’s like that shoebox diorama you made in 2nd grade. It may be an awesome box, but there’s so much more to it.
WordPress is now so much more than a blogging platform. Beyond blogging, one might say. Of course, it’s got the heart and soul of a blog. Like how Shawn White is a killer snowboarder. But then he wins the X Games gold medal for skateboarding? WTF mate? How can one guy be that cool. Not fair. But when you take WordPress and apply the same freakish ability to be awesome at a lot of things, and add in the fact that it’s free? It’s like the gold medal winner for a CMS. WordPress is way beyond blogging…brahh.
