WordPress: 10 years of blogging

Today ten years ago the very first version of WordPress was released, which has become the most blogging platform in use on the Web at the moment, powering over 60 million websites worldwide! I personally am using WordPress since January 2008 and still a happy user! I have gone through 11 main releases in roughly six years as I started with version 2.3 (‘Dexter‘) while the current version is 3.5.1 (‘Elvin‘)…main releases of WordPress are codenamed after well-known jazz musicians.

Some pretty well known websites are using the platform too; The New York Times, CNN, Reuters, Forbes, Mashable, TechCrunch, GigaOM, AllThingsD, etc.

Sweet is the love letter that cofounder Matt Mullenweg wrote to the love of his life: WordPress! 😉


Happy 10th anniversary WordPress, and indeed; the next 10 starts now!
