WordPress Origin Story

My origin story started back in 1998 working at VDI Data Center in Bloomfield and Clifton, NJ. VDI is where cPanel was created and had many clients doing affiliate marketing. Around 2002, many clients at VDI were looking for a fast way to develop many websites with multiple landing pages.cPanel and b2/cafelog were a create combination, and then WordPress came out in 2003. WordPress was a game changer for online marketers and affiliates. I got to work in the trenches with many clients using WordPress on their dedicated servers. I eventually spun off on my own, doing web design, development, hosting, and digital marketing. WordPress is the foundation of my business and what I built a life around.
