When Did Your WordPress Journey Begin?

When Did Your WordPress Journey Begin?

WordPress has only been around for eight years or so, but it’s hard to imagine a world without our favorite publishing platform.

I ran a couple of personal blogging projects on WordPress.com in 2007-2008, but it wasn’t until early 2009 that I started using the WordPress.org software in a professional capacity.

So I’m no doubt a WordPress greenhorn compared to many of you folk out there. Which begs the question…

When and where did your WordPress journey begin?

How long have you been using WordPress?
