Celebrating 10 years of WordPress!
This site started as an open-source tool where users could create, personalize, and publish their own blogs. From personal to informative, anyone with access to a computer could easily construct one of these pages.
Now over 18% of websites use WordPress. Its not only authors like yourself. Many high-profile websites use WordPress (including New York Times, CNN, Reuters, and of course Mashable).
With the incorporation of several analytic tools, a twitter integration, and shopping cart mechanisms, WordPress has become one of the best sites out there for bloggers (both experienced and not experienced).
