Why I Use Expression Web (And Why You Should Too)


As you can see from the sidebar of this blog, my main areas of expertise lie in WordPress and Expression Web. The truth of the matter is for me the two are intrinsically linked: I use Expression Web to make WordPress do my bidding. To that people often ask me “Why?”. “Why do you use Expression Web and not one of the more established web development platforms (i.e. Dreamweaver)?”

To answer this question I wrote an article for the QUE blog entitled Why I Use Expression Web (And Why You Should Too). To go with the article I also created a short video demonstrating the lightning fast CSS abilities of Expression Web. I find that it’s easier to show this technique than try to explain it.

Once you’ve finished watching the video I urge you to jump over to the QUE blog and read my article. I really do think you should start using Expression Web too (and no, I’m not being paid to say that).

  1. Thank you for posting this video! I’m working on developing an interactive website with Expression Web & WordPress. And I am new to current webdesign (last developed a website in 2000 with Claris Home Page!) This was exactly what I needed to know… Now I just hope it works with my older version of M.E.W. v2 2008 Thanks!
