Hi everyone,
I was always using wordpress for my blog which is focused on buying wireless headphones. Now I would like some SilverStripe expert tips and ideas. What are the advantages/disadvantages using SilverStripe in comparison with WordPress? Thanks andall comments, ideas and tips are welcome.

I think the best way to decide if you want to switch to Silverstripe is to install it somewhere and play with it. Do some tutorials, design some templates etc etc etc.

Use the right system for the right job. If you just want to publish a blog, Wordpress might be the right choice.
Silverstripe/Saphire is very flexible. you can build whatever you want and extend the cms/site with a few lines of code. You get a, in my opinion, superior admin panel and framework to build a cms that suits your special needs.

The choice to use SS or WP depends of what you need.
