WordPress Origin Story

I was wary of WordPress at first and so put off learning to use it for a very long time. I was wary of the security issue and I didn’t understand the difference between stand alone WordPress sites and ones hosted by WordPress. I am essentially a writer first who has an interest in tech. But one day someone asked me about WordPress, and my advice to her was to try it but approach the learning in short sessions and have fun with the learning. I then took my own advice. Now I love using WordPress. I have built sites using different platforms and software, including a short stint a long time ago learning to write code using notepad, Dreamweaver and Coldfusion.. let’s say that I was a dabbler. But like I said I am essentially a writer, with a curiosity about code. I see code as poetry. And I love that WordPress carries a spirit of the essence of Jazz. I like to imagine that the creative and independent spirit of Jazz is imbued in each iteration of the software.
