Deciding to stop using WordPress wasn't an easy decision - I have used it since around 2011. WordPress is popular and so widely supported but has limitations.
The projects that I'm working on often need customisations which are made very difficult to achieve and maintain in WordPress. At the end of 2019 I went on the look-out for a better CMS.
After having just completed a project in Laravel, I knew that I wanted the CMS to be based on that PHP framework. Statamic version 3 was just about to be released into beta and I instantly took to it.
In summer 2020 I was approved as a certified Statamic freelancer.
