Can you believe WordPress is already turning 18 years old? As time goes on and technology advances, WordPress has grown from a blogging platform to a web development powerhouse. Trinity Web Media is a company that specializes in WordPress development, so we’re proud to say we’ve been along for the ride.
In today’s Trinity Web Minute, Greg mentions just how incredible the community built around WordPress is, and how we can’t wait to get back involved with WordCamps & other WordPress-related activities in 2021.
With all that being said, happy 18th birthday to WordPress! Cheers to the tremendous growth experienced over the years.
Hey, I’m Greg Taylor, from Trinity Web Media another bonus episode of the New Marketing Show. So May 27 WordPress turns 18 years old. So I can’t believe that it’s 18 years since WordPress was founded by Matt Mullenweg at all. And the great guys automatic recently forked from another blogging system called B2, if you didn’t know, but, you know, 18 years Wow.
You know, WordPress has come from being just that that other blogging platform or that blogging platform, to web development powerhouse. You know, I don’t know if anybody really saw it coming from the beginning. I think I just did a video and saying something like that.
But what the cool thing is, is the opportunities, the career paths, the friendships that I’ve made over the years, with a lot of other people who do exactly what we do at Trinity Web Media, but do it differently and do it in their own way. You know, a couple of those people of course, being you know what good friends, Chuck Reynolds, Jonathan, Jonathan Crasati, Josh Ziering, Andrew Rhino, you know, Brad Williams, guys, I admire like Brian Gardner who created StudioPress, who’s got this new thing called frost WP frost coming out that I’m super, super excited about.
Uou know, all the other great WordPress agencies and great WordPress developers that I know, Jennifer and Brian born out of Sacramento, and just tons of good good people that I’ve been able to cultivate relationships with and get to know over the years, and, you know, are still in touch with all the time as I’m not as ingrained with the WordPress community as I once was. that’ll probably change, I think, beginning of 2022.
But, you know, we’re just letting this pandemic run out, you know, and I’m looking forward to seeing everybody in person speaking at word camps, again, getting the band back together, so to speak, you know, all that stuff. But my gratitude for WordPress, you know, is measurable. And we’ve been able to do some really great things for a lot of clients, using the platform. It’s been amazing to just to see how, how smart some people are with using it, and how you know, they make it work and how they tie all everything together with it.
So happy 18 you’re old enough to vote. You know, you’ve been democratizing publishing since day one. So now it’s only fitting that you’re old enough to vote. So congrats, everybody, and we look forward to continuing our journey with WordPress. Take care. Stay safe. See you later.
