     3.  Word press does not allow you to upload themes

For many bloggers having the ability to personalise and create a blog which portrays the message the blogger wants to put across is essential. Word press only offers a very limited choice of themes for bloggers to do this and users are not able to modify or change any of the themes in any way.

Word press will allow users to pay a fee of £30 to add customised fonts to certain themes or to buy special themes but users still can not modify theme functionality or features in any way.  This is a major disadvantage of using word press as a blogging tool, is that it limit’s how unique a blog post or website can be. Which means websites cant be as unique making them less memorable to users.
