WordPress Origin Story

My history with WordPress first began with other CMS systems, namely SharePoint and Atlassian systems at my previous employer in the early- to mid-2000’s. On the side I published my first WP site in 2009, and kept on learning more ever since. For a while I side-tracked over to Drupal and Joomla!, but after a variety of never-ending issues found my way back to WordPress and since 2011 it’s all I use! Love WP!
