WordPress Origin Story

The year was 2006, it was a dark and stormy night. I was hunched over my PC finishing up editing a flash template for a client’s website. Flash was annoying to use and I was tired of tweens and timelines. To make things more dreary, my next client wanted some features I couldn’t find in a flash template anyways; they wanted to edit their content pages!? Luckily for me, a few hotbot searches later I found WordPress. The rain outside ended. The sun came out. I giggled after the 5 minute install process and declared then that I would never sell another flash template site as long as I lived. I’ve been drinking the WordPress kool-aid ever since. MMmm tastes good!
