Today is WordPress’ official eighth birthday (the anniversary of the first release).
I still marvel at the incredible distance it has come. I’m also still proud that I had a part in its birth. But even more, I marvel at the wonderful contribution of all the WordPress community make to this fantastic project.
A client said to me this morning “This WordPress is brilliant isn’t it?” As I helped him set up his fourth WordPress site. You can’t get much clearer praise than that.
So raise a virtual beer (or other non-alcoholic beverage if, like me, you are teetotal) to WordPress, the community, and to another year.
Update: I just spotted this tweet from Andrew Nacin:
At more than 20 million WordPress.com blogs, that puts WordPress at north of 45 million sites. Wowza. Happy birthday indeed.
