Here at BlogMeHow, we keep talking about WordPress, web hosting, themes and the works, so much so that we sometimes forget that given the power of WordPress, it is pretty obvious that it is not just used by bloggers or website owners, but even by large companies as well as some of our favorite celebs. There are lot of big and famous WordPress Sites around, and some of them can be a surprise.
We thought to take a detour from our usual posts and thought of exploring what kind of sites some of the well known celebrities run and what platform do they use.
