To help you determine the best content management system (CMS) for your blog, we asked bloggers and marketing professionals this question for their best insights. From Squarespace to Webflow, there are several recommended CMS software to help you build and manage your blog content.
What is your preferred CMS for your blog and why?
Squarespace website builder has an easy-to-use interface, a WYSIWYG editor, and many built-in features for creating a website. Although this content management system is not open source, it does allow users to make changes to the HTML/CSS and Java code. As a result, Squarespace is the best cms blog for those who are not code experts but want to create a professional-looking and secure site for personal or business use.

WordPress allows you to create a basic website or a functional blog in minutes. In addition, the libraries of WordPress themes and plugins (free or paid) are numerous and will allow you to set up a site with a minimum of “face” and this is a relatively simple way.
When buying a WordPress theme, you can also push the customization from the back-office of the site thanks to the additional CSS, so of course, you benefit from knowledge in the field.
I am also loving the extreme ease of use, its impressive community, its attractive features and its customization

We like HubSpot CMS because it doesn’t require you to maintain, protect, update or otherwise ‘manage’ your site. It just works because it’s designed for marketers and business people who want to share articles and link their content to the rest of their marketing stack, including lead capture landing pages and a customer CRM database.

I prefer Blogger for my blogs. First of all, it’s free. And you don’t need to be a technology geek or need tech skills to use it. It’s pretty straightforward for running your blogs on it. The security it provides is just top-notch, the reason why I like it the most. And it’s extremely easy to combine it with your google drive. On top of it, it has an anti-spam option for the comment section. Hence, your comment section remains clean.

We recently turned to EasyContent to scale content for our blog. We work with a team of freelancers and need very basic functionality in terms of word processing, yet need a streamlined and simplified system to push content to WordPress. EasyContent makes it easy to work with freelancers without revealing the inner intricacies and strategies of our operations and allows us to assign different writers to various projects from one central account. The program also gives us a birdseye view of piece status so that editors can keep a firm grasp on deadlines and writer productivity.

Although Webflow is the “new CMS on the block”, my preferred CMS is still Webflow today. With Webflow CMS we’re able to easily build out a scaleable content strategy for our business through the use of bulk CMS page uploads, drag and drop editor, and the CMS update features to test out new content strategies.
Webflow still needs to make a lot of updates to catch up to WordPress CMS, but for now, it’s been my preferred CMS solution for multiple blogs we run – especially with their ability to build out beautifully designed and interactive websites, all without being a true “designer”.
