WordPress Origin Story

I first discovered WordPress at college when we are starting a blog (Sugbo.ph) with my friends at the student publication. I was a writer back then so I’m mostly generating content. I was later introduced to WordPress to publish my own posts. I didn’t realize how awesome WordPress was at that time. All I know was that it provided everything we need to make the blog successful. 7 years later that blog has over 1 million followers on Facebook.

As I moved on with my professional career WordPress has become an integral part even on a personal level. WordPress is an efficient content marketing system and it has made my work easier!

Later on, through some marketing folks I knew locally, I later found out about a WordPress community in Cebu. And who would know that I would be helping organize a WordCamp conference now? I’m a marketing guy and I’m supposed to be working on email marketing and social media. But I also did help with content planning for WordCamp Cebu, made some of the publishing materials, and published some posts. Through the years, I learned my way around WordPress well and it has been much honor to make us of it to bring back to the WordPress community through WordCamp Cebu 2023. I can’t wait for the next WordCamp conference!
