WordPress Origin Story

Back in the late 1990’s, I got involved with developing Drupal sites for people. CMSes were pretty exciting. Years went by, and WordPress, improbably really, was more and more the preferred CMS for people. I still did e-commerce sites using Drupal, but worked on some blogs around 2009, and got to know WordPress.

I’ve been working with it since, from simple installations to custom themes, and working a little bit on plugin development or expansion for my own projects. I love how powerful the platform is – it’s not for nothing that it runs 60% of websites right now, September of 2018 – while still being very accessible and easy to learn on a basic level for someone completely new to making websites.
