WordPress Origin Story

Year was 2002. There was no WIX, no Weebly, no SquareSpace, no WordPress back then. I was using a proprietary CMS solution that was not sexy at all. It lacked basic features with no way to fix or improve it.

A year later in walks WordPress billed as a free, open source blogging solution which quickly evolved into an ideal system for full CMS websites. I finally had ultimate control on implementing required functionality and features for my projects, fast! I’ve been hooked since.

And WordPress has only gotten “sweeter and sweeter as the days go by.” I credit this to Automattic’s founders. Their brilliance, work ethic, values and true concern for every user is modeled at the top and trickles down to the WordPress community. To all of them & everyone involved, thank you!
