WordPress Origin Story

When I was starting my business, I knew I needed a website, but I didn’t know how to create one. Thankfully, a friend of mine who knew about WordPress offered to help me out.

As we worked on the website, I was amazed at how user-friendly and easy-to-use WordPress was. My friend explained all the different features, like themes and plugins, and before long, we had a functional website up and running.

After that I started experimenting with WordPress on my own, and I was able to create a website that I was really proud of. Word got around, and soon I was getting requests from small business owners who wanted me to create websites for them too.

Even though I didn’t have any formal web development training, I felt confident using WordPress to create websites. I took on more and more projects, and with each one, I learned something new and gained more experience.

Looking back, I’m so grateful to have discovered WordPress. It’s a powerful and flexible platform that’s also really fun to use. That’s why I decided to start giving back by contributing to the WordPress forums and helping out others who are just starting out.

After all, the WordPress community helped me when I was just getting started, and I want to do the same for others.
