What do you like best?
The ease of use is quite nice these days. In the early days of WordPress, it was not so user-friendly, especially when adding and arranging images. However, they've made it a point to get people on their platform and have made image placement and resisizing very easy.
Also, a great platform for low budget startups as it comes with a multitude of free templates.
What do you dislike?
Though sizing and arrangements may be easier than it used to be, it can cause issues if the user is unfamiliar with inserting both images and wording. Columns can get skewed and a bit wonky.
