  6. These are some of the most amazing themes! Their elegant and creatively simple design is just beautiful! I would really love to have one…Thanks:)

  7. I’ve had my eye on these designs for ages!

    Why I love WordPress among other CMS’…
    – It’s designed for blogging (It’s doesn’t attempt to be everything, like Drupal).
    – It takes everything about blogging and put’s it in one easy to use dashboard
    – It’s so popular that there are thousands of plugins, hundreds of good themes & many great blogs like this that support & help to make it better!

  8. Let me try my luck! thanks for the offer!

  9. I just love WordPress… and my love have no reason ;)

  10. Ok… Let me be simple and straight!

    I love Google and Google loves WordPress so finally I love WordPress.

  11. I also want the free membership. I love wordpress coz it’s very easy to handle.

  12. I Second Owen, as in my words…If you can operate Microsoft Word, you can probably use WordPress.

  13. The main thing i like about wordpress is it’s ease to installation…. i mean Can it get any faster? One-click installs and the 5-minute installation.

  14. I can count number of reasons about why we love it. but for winning this contest ony one is needed so i choose the strongest one.

    WordPress is very Straight forward and very predictable. No found Flaws till now!!

  15. IN case of WP there is no other software needed…. Of you Have laptop and wireless connection? Go blog in Starbucks if you want and blog about your dogs.


  16. Rocking Themes Guys! Some killer designs. i also love to have one of the year long free membership. Thanks iShift.

    All the best to everyone.

  18. Hahahaha…. it’s simple… the options are in wide range…. Thousands of rockin’ free themes are out there to use Like instantShift’s itself.

    I love your Free WordPress Christmas theme and it’s v1.1 too…. keep them coming.

  19. Without a doubt….wordpress the best CMS ever !

  20. The thing which make humans apart from Animals…. the same thing aparts wordpress from other CMS.

    Thanks for Elegant Themes and instantShift for the free membership… Good luck everyone.

  21. Nice one Emily…..for mine, its so easy to use and edit.. it makes CSS so easy!

  22. @ Emily…. The best reason i ever heard.. LOL!!

    I love WordPress & Drupal the most.

  23. Ont thing I love about WordPress is that its extremely scalable. You can use it as a forum, a website directory, a blog, a static site just whatever you wish!

    Secondly, managing WordPress is also very easy. I had my hosted blog up and running within an hour of installing it. All my posts from Blogspot blog were automatically imported by WordPress 2.7 and all I had to do was change design.

    As admin, managing WP is easier than my previous platform that had only “Writer” and “admin” account. With WordPress’s admin, editor, writer and contributor accounts, its easy to manage guest posts as well.

    Changing themes is a piece of cake. And best thing I love over my previous CMS is that even if you change theme, all settings remain intact. So, if I later change theme, I can have same old design and settings!

    The plugins extend it beautifully. My favorite phrase since I have started using WordPress is “There is a Plugin for everything”. Why should I not say that? PLugins let you do anything!

    And the icing on the cake is that its free and opem source.

    That’s why i love WordPress!

  24. I love WP because it’s a great way to create a blog on a simple way, eventhough you’re not a master in HTML, CSS and those kind of things I’ve always found extremely hard to learn about…

    Plus, these themes by Elegant Themes are awesome…! If only I could get one of those… uh.

  25. When I originally thought of making my website, I hadn’t intended it to be a blog… while looking for a good CMS, I stumbled onto WordPress and its great CMS-powers… also convinced me to just make a blog out of the site.

    A very good decision

  26. WordPress rockz because it’s opensource! And free!

  27. I love WordPress for one reason, simplicity!

  28. wow wow wow, i like this memebership!!!!

  29. At first, WordPress seems like a blog software only. What it doesn’t show is its hidden potential to be just anytype of site you want it to be with custom fields, plugins and many more.

    Its simple for bloggers who just want a blogging platform but at the same time also flexible enough for developers who want more..

    Kudos to the WP Team.

  30. WordPress is universal. You can do anything with it and it’s extremely simple to use or modify

  31. Easy customization. Great plugins. Great Community.

  32. WordPress has amazing SEO by default without any tweaking. If you want more preferable SEO, it’s easily done by installing a couple of plugins, such as the All in One SEO Pack.

  33. WordPress is the best because it’s the easyers one to administrate, customize and add whatever you want on it without any problem and hosting company don’t bother you with e-mails about the high cpu and it can even safe a lot of bandwith with the apropriet plugins

  34. Nice WordPress Themes

    – Is very easy to use
    – Quick to install
    – Great for beginners

  35. – Flexibility with plugins and themes make WordPress superior!
    not to mention that it’s very easy

  43. I like WordPress because it is a platform that allows me to work with a multitude of resources, both free and paid, is much development and gives me the possibility that I can make a contribution, for its easy adaptation and learning.


  44. I like WordPress because:
    – it’s easy
    – it’s user friendly
    – has plugins for nearly everything!

  45. Why wordpress?
    1. WordPress is for a pro and for layman
    2. WordPress is by defualt SEO optimized and after this its up to you how much optimization you want to do.
    3. WordPress is completely free

    11. I love wordpress and that’s why I want to win this giveaway :)

  46. WordPress is the best CMS because of it’s easy use and popularity among websites. Many, many freelancers that I know and have heard of own their own blog under their domain name supported by WordPress. I know how easy it is to use, even before I was coding in xHTML/CSS and PHP, it was very easy to navigate, post up blogs and customize for my own use.

    Many amazing themes can be produced by WordPress that can kill a web page design any day. I have to give my respects to Elegant Themes, they’re WordPress themes are truly amazing and worth signing up on the site for. Sadly, some people don’t have the money for the themes, but if I could or anyone else had the opportunity like this, I woud use their themes for many sites and make sure to keep the copyright because they deserve recognition. Besides Elegant Themes producing amazing layouts, almost anyone could if they dedicated themselves to learning how to code with WordPress and learn how to design for WordPress. It’s amazing how with some practice, people could make amazing WordPress themes.

    Lastly, I have to say what I love the most about WordPress is the plugins. Anyone here that owns a WordPress powered blog cannot say that the plugins are the most useful thing that WordPress can offer. If I could get myself a nice theme, power a blog by WordPress, the first thing I would do would be to install many useful plugins for my site and get everything running. The plugins that people make and what WordPress offers are truly amazing.

    I have to say, I would be considered a fan girl for WordPress. It’s an amazing CMS that I personally love.

  47. wordpress as cms if very flexible and has many add-ons.

  48. WordPress Rocks

    Id love to win a premium account from elegant themes

  51. I like WordPress because it’s so easy.

    You can get it up and running on under 5 minuts, it’s fantastic!

    And it’s very easy to customize, if you don’t know anything about coding you can just download one of the thousands WordPress themes there is out on the net.

    And if you need anything on your blog is there almost always a plugin there do exactly what you want!

  52. Why WordPress? It’s easy to try out on, standalone installation on is a snap, and there’s plenty of good themes to pick from. It’s extensible, with many plugins for pretty much everything one would like. Other than that it has my all time favourite feature – it just works :)

  53. These are simply amazing.
    Thanks for the opportunity to be able to win a membership!
