WordPress Origin Story

In 2006 a client asked about the ability to manage their own website and had heard about WordPress. I began dabbling in WordPress, to enlighten the client but also to learn more about using WordPress as a website platform. With the advent of responsive design, it became much easier to develop using WordPress and plugins. I was able to create full fledge e-commerce sites, learning sites and so much more. I enjoy developing websites through WordPress and have been using it ever since. I still develop HTML websites and am proficient, but if a client wants to manage their site, I always recommend WordPress as my software of choice.
