I like this place, but for reasons I am not yet sure. I think it is about the simplicity of the offerings. It is clean to use, it is clean to look at. That matters. I am an avid fan of non-complex systems. Too many bells and whistles and I am out.
I have lost interest for WordPress, it has become a behemoth. There are too many features that a blogger would need. Sure, it will get you started, but then there are so many other basic blogging engines that will do that very well. Why go for WP then? That platform is for people serious about starting their blog or website.
In a hope to be something for all, you stop being anything for anyone.
I believe WordPress is going through a similar phase.
