WordPress Origin Story

Started with my WordPress.com blog about Typography while I was a graphic design student at Rochester Institute of Technology. Eventually moved to self-hosted WordPress and started modifying existing themes. Eventually learning the right way after doing it the wrong way. Still working to improve.
