    1. If you really want to customise or create your own theme, plugins; knowledge of PHP will be required which is harder than HTML and CSS.
    2. Installing wordpress could be a hassle if your hosting doesn't provide one click wordpress installation.
    3. You will need to buy a hosting account, unlike blogger (there is wordpress.com which does not need separate hosting but it's power is very limited).
    4. May not be suitable for huge websites especially e-commerce sites(It is possible to make e-commerce sites with Wordpress using Woo-commerce plugin but there are better options)

    Wordpress is good for a beginner as well as professional, for a small as well as medium websites. However, if you have web development and designing skills you will find limited options in wordpress. Furthermore, for a large website that sees a very large number of visitors, wordpresss is not suitable. Wordpress is good for content sites, personal websites, however, for ecommerse store there are better CMS options available
