WordPress Origin Story

In 1997 I began helping others with websites using Netscape Composer, moving on to other tools I eventually settled on using Dreamweaver as my main coding tool. Back to school to get certified in web design and webmaster then hanging my shingle as Orion’s Web.
After a few years the demand for more complex websites, with databased content, and the ability for the clients to manage their own content led me to years of anguish dealing with developers and custom solutions. I quickly determined the best solutions for small business was to go with an established, well maintained existing solution…
I launched my first WordPress.org website in 2005 and have been a devoted user ever since. I’ve helped establish or fix hundreds of wordpress sites over the past dozen years, and am always learning something new!
