Sorry, this has zero Brexit content.

Is Wordpress a good tool to show the progress of our eco house? (Mostly finished, buts lots of photos of the progress)

Also, is Wordpress usable as a commercial web site builder?

Thanks.

A lot of people blog on Wordpress and I had one on there at one time but I can't get back into it now! Not sure if it's me or Wordpress that's at fault.

I'm no expert but have made and run a few WordPress sites. It works very well, has a lot of support, very flexible. Many, many sites you regularly use will be WordPress without you realising.

Indeed.
There is much of interest and importance that is nothing to do with Brexit.

Wordpress: what is it good for? Absolutely nothing! Say it again.

Sorry. It’s very good really.

I use it on several sites I maintain, but as a standalone installation, not hosted by wordpress.com. I've found it pretty simple to set up an configure, and with a bit of effort your site can look quite presentable.
