    What analogy would you suggest to a "technophobe" for WordPress as a website, blogging platform?

      Content Management System.

      It WAS a blogging platform, but in Wordpress 3 they rebranded themself as a CMS. I have several sites, for example, that are not blogs at all, but are powered by Wordpress and it fits like a glove.

      I have a game site where I can add new games for people to play, complete with content, thumbnails, related links, flash content, ads, and more, all created dynamically through Wordpress.

      So, to sum it up, Wordpress is widely used for Blogging, but it is considered a CMS, or Content Management System.

        Thanks for the idea.  I am also finding that "content management system" can be difficult for many.
