We’ve been with ya a long time WordPress. We have had ups, downs, separations, malware infections and hacked sites. We (The Community) made WordPress what it is today. What started out as a simple blogging platform morphed into something much much more bigger. They power 18% of the world wide web for crying out loud. I found myself blogging in WordPress in 2007, after many blogs later learning some code, checking out some cool must have plug ins(sexy bookmarks, all in one seo, contact form 7 anyone?) found myself using it on any new idea i had and suggesting it to power most of my clients sites.
I have been a long supporter of WordPress for its convenience, its accessibility and its backend which you can customize and make your web editing, developing, writing, organizing much easier for you. Way to go Matt and the team and i hope 10 years from now you got 50% of the web down pat!
