I found this particular assignment to be relatively easy. I have prior experience with another WYSIWYG editor–specifically, Google Sites. I have also used Google Sheets to set up documents that may be distributed by people through the built-in functions that Google offers. So the jump was not too far to come to WordPress and play around.
I do like the fact that the user interface is quite simple and easy to use. The menu is very easy to navigate and gives some flexibility–but not total. Which brings me to my next point, I would prefer an interface that would give more items for customization than the basics that WordPress does offer. I also disliked the general feeling of the interface. The interface seems to offer just a very rudimentary amount of customization options. Is this ALL that WordPress offers….?
What I find limiting the number of available free options. I feel as if what I can do will often differ drastically from what I want to do. I would like to be able to maybe upload a different image for the backgrounds of my blog posts. Or be able to use a different solid color other than the three WordPress offers: Red, Green, and Purple. The ability to use tinting and/or shading options would be nice. Or even a simple color picker tool. Yet these things seem to be absent from the editor supplied by WordPress.
Overall, I would suggest WordPress to those whom are already strapped for time, and want to get up and running with an online presence, but not for those whom want more control.
