WordPress Origin Story

I probably started using WordPress casually around ’03 I’d install it randomly on my laptop play with it for a few hours then go about my life.

Around 2010-11 I started using it for a few small projects. Today I use it daily and almost all my web development is related in some way to WordPress.
