Bio

I’m passionate about WordPress, and have been hosting websites on WordPress, BuddyPress and bbPress for more than 10 years. I love finding ways to make WordPress faster and more elegant, and share tips and tricks on my website at Technology Poet.

WordPress Origin Story

I first started using WordPress in around 2007 or 2008 back when blogs were in vogue. After setting up my own blog and site I gradually began running sites for friends and family and eventually turned my obsession with WordPress from a hobby to a legitimate side project.

Today I run many websites on WordPress and have tasted the joys and torment of BuddyPress and bbPress along with the daunting task of adding features to WordPress without bringing PHP to it’s performance knees.
