FULL DISCUSSION
 

For me as a dev, there are 3 big reasons:

  1. There are a lot of users, who have made posts that are easily google-able.
  2. The documentation - especially now - is top-notch and easily accessible.
  3. I can write simple documentation for clients to edit their own sites.

There just isn't another CMS that can compare for the not-particularly-technical end-user.

The WordPress.com entry point also was huge at the time.
