WordPress Origin Story

I read a newspaper article in 2004 about this hot new thing called blogging. At that moment I decided to be a professional blogger. I tested all the blog platforms in cPanel Fantastico (several to choose from) and I decided to blog with WordPress because the code was simple and elegant. My blog was very successful, which forced me to learn more about WordPress, Linux, MySQL, PHP, CSS and so on.
