WordPress Origin Story

Migrated to the WordPress experience after watching clients struggle to use the alternatives. Fell out of love with WordPress as my personal development skills slowly improved. Thankfully, my love has been rekindled as WordPress slowly but steadily rolled out each new phase of Gutenberg. My fingers are now well and truely jammed back into the fruit-filled WordPress pie.
Wordpress is an institution founded upon an ideology of inclusion and accessibility seldom seen in today’s gig economy. It is truely inspiring to stand in the shadows and watch the amazingly talented WordPress contributors work, discuss, revise and deploy.
