WordPress Origin Story

I was originally highly involved in the XOOPS community as their Systems Admin and, in the end, Project Manager. The project then forked and I contributed to the creation of ImpressCMS. Realizing the project would be better suited to moving on without me, I turned to an alternate system I had been using for specialized blogs that had been a fork of B2Evolution – That being WordPress. I then to dedicate my time to developing exclusively with the WordPress platform and have since developed in excess of 1,000 sites using it. I wouldn’t use anything else for 99% of website needs.
