Why Joomla Is Awesome

Joomla is one of the most awesome pieces of software out there, and there are four main reasons that it excites me and why I continue contributing to the Joomla community and an advocating for this CMS.

You can customize Joomla into anything that you need it to be. There are thousands of templates, components, plugins and modules that help you make your site unique. Whatever you need to do, you have the ability to do it. If none of the free themes suit your tastes, or you don’t know how to develop on the Joomla platform, check out some of the vendors that sell high quality themes to meet your needs.

Easy To Deploy
Whether you run a Windows or Linux environment, you are able to deploy Joomla. Within a matter of minutes you can get your Joomla site up and running, ready to serve up your content to your users.

Mature Platform
Joomla has been around for over six years, since it forked from the Mambo project. In that time it has evolved into a very advanced and stable CMS that is used in schools, corporate intranets and small businesses. If you need a website, Joomla will be there for you.

My Seven Iron
The last reason that I love Joomla so much is that it came naturally to me, kind of like my favorite golf club. I picked it up, looked at it and studied it, and within a couple of swings I was up and running. I have always felt comfortable not only with the software, but also the community, which in large part is why Joomla is so awesome to me.
