Happy Birthday, WordPress!

Well, well. Who’d a thunk it? WordPress is four years old! Well, as Mike Little’s Journalized points out, it’s four years since Matt first posted his thoughts about starting a fork of the b2 blogging software.[1] And in those four years, WordPress was created and grew into the hugely popular thing it is today.

It’s certainly come a long way since I converted this site to WP back in September 2004 – not just in WordPress itself, but in the ever-growing range of plugins that extend it and help users make their sites their own. I was mildly surprised to find that I’ve been using WP for more than half its life – somehow, I thought it had been around a bit longer…

On to the next four years. :bouncy:
