The question how to choose your Content Management System (CMS) is very difficult. Particularly at the beginning.

Which big names use Drupal?

I saw a post recently about another Drupal 8 site that got launched. It was Rainforest Alliance. Nothing special at first. But then, out of curiosity, I clicked on it and checked it. While I was admiring the impressive pictures of the forests, I suddenly remembered that over a month ago I read an article about city of Boston launching its website on Drupal. Then it hit me. Who are the »big names« that Drupal can show off to the world and say 'These are our most proud members'?

Content on Drupal and Wordpress

Before I found myself in marketing, I was a journalist. I have written many blogs and other journalistic articles in my career. Practically all of them were written either on Drupal or in Wordpress. Ok, there were exceptions, when I was writing for the newspaper, but we are talking here about writing for digital platforms. When I stopped being a journalist, I found my way in content marketing, where my focus is still on blogs. Therefore, I will compare Drupal and Wordpress regarding content.
