Check out the latest post on Inspired Magazine for a great article about WordPress as a Content Management System (CMS). They cover the pros and cons of using WordPress to manage your website content, feature some WordPress websites from some movers and shakers in the business world, and they round it out with a list of favorite plugins. (though I think they missed a gem: Widget Logic, which lets you customize which pages each widget will or will not appear on.)
One of my favorite things to do when I see such a hot blog is to open the source code and hunt for the plugins. I love to see what the big boys are using.
The Inspired Mag site has a pleasing design; note how they prominently display the number of followers and subscriptions they have… with all the tools to jump on the bandwagon and follow them right there in the same area. Who doesn’t want to be friends with the popular kid on the block?
I’m actually surprised at the number of ads: more than a third of their site is devoted to them. But I guess if you’ve got a page rank of 5 you can get away with it.
