Today is the the 7th anniversary of the release of WordPress and today I’d like to say how thankful I am for it’s existence. I am.
WordPress is being used around the world, every day, to enrich our lives. It’s a tool that makes anyone a publisher. Think of the revolution that followed the printing press. Now imagine the printing press as a portable device anyone could carry with them—for free—sending pamphlets, essays, literature, and poetry, out around the world instantly.
Imagine that. It’s amazing.
So, thank you, WordPress. And by that I mean thank you to everyone working on WordPress; everyone contributing plugins and themes; everyone writing about WordPress; and everyone using WordPress. Thank you for keeping this ball rolling.
Here’s to many more: cheers.
