Bio

Full stack WordPress Developer. Passionate about clean code & clean WordPress sites!

WordPress Origin Story

As a professional web developer since 1999, Bonnie began working with WordPress in 2007 and absolutely hated it. After migrating one client to the WordPress and one client to Drupal, she decided she hated both of them, and put everything back into hard coded HTML that she had to update herself all the time for her clients. Yep, it was that bad.

In 2010, she started to begrudgingly admit that she was tired of constantly re-inventing the web development / Content Management System wheel and that WordPress both produced the cleanest HTML code that she felt like dealing with and that the WordPress coding style was the best match for her own coding style. At the time, WordPress was also becoming popular enough that clients were beginning to recognize and feel comfortable with working in the WordPress admin environment.

By 2013, she migrated her “Web Baby Shower” online baby shower service to the WordPress Multisite platform and thereby became a full-fledged, self-admitted WordPress Dork aka Full Stack WordPress Developer.

Formerly known as “Snowboard Mommy,” Bonnie is a freelance WordPress Developer in Bend, Oregon currently not assuming any fancy screen names.
