• I totally agree, David. Folks will tell you that WordPress is free, and it is, but the ancillary costs. including hosting, put it in the same category as a SaaS CMS like SquareSpace, Wix, Shopify, etc. You pay nearly $1K/year, and you still have to count in your maintenance time. Because viruses and vulnerabilities.

    Anymore, I try to steer the smaller web owner to a Wix, SS, etc, because it is a better value for their limited budgets.

    • The simplicity of Wix is appealing. My daughter prefers it and just doesn’t need the advanced flexibility of WordPress. If we get a good lifetime product that we will use then we are fortunate.
