WordPress Origin Story

When I first set up my website in late 2007, I didn’t know about WordPress or other CMS systems to make my blogging experience easier, so I wrote my own. It was ugly but it worked. It did everything I needed it to do because I wrote it myself.

Then, when I moved out of the country for an extended stint, I wanted the maintenance of my website to be easier. That’s when I decided to migrate my whole site from the custom home-brew setup to WordPress. I copied and pasted and altered everything by hand to fit. It was time consuming but worth it.
