WordPress Origin Story

I was a MovableType fan girl for many, many years. Of course, in those early days there was no WordPress. I won’t even start to tell you about the days before Movable Type. Anyway, a PHP developer I hired in 2009 begged me to try WordPress, so I converted one site. I hated it, by the way. Now, five years later, I have 55 WordPress sites. I no longer hate it. Here’s a 20-word poem I wrote to win a ticket to the sold-out 2011 WordCamp San Diego.

My sites began on MovableType.
I thought WordPress was all hype.
But at 2010 WordCamp LA,
I grokked WordPress. Hooray!
