Dilemma No More

The Blogging Software Dilemma. On this day, 6 years ago, WordPress was conceived in the comments section of this blog. Hat tip: Mike Little!

  1. Wow. Happy B-day. 🙂 I’m sure that it was probably a bit more complicated than that little suggestion in the comments section, but who would’ve thought that ‘The Blogging Software Dilemma’ would have taken you this far. lol.

  2. it would be nice to have the flexibility of MovableType, the parsing of TextPattern, the hackability of b2, and the ease of setup of Blogger. Someday, right?
    she’s come quite a long way. i always tell my clients & friends that i use wordpress for it’s ease-of-use and customizability. it’d be interesting to know how you feel about those goals from 6 years ago now…are we there yet? and does it matter anymore if we aren’t since the end result blows the competition out of the water (imho)?

    thanks for starting this project, matt,and happy b-day wp!

  3. Happy Birthday WordPress! 🙂 It’s nice to see the progress since 2005 and I can’t wait to see what WordPress will be in the future. Cheers!

  4. Thanks to Matt for WordPress and by extension for promoting an interest in open source generally, whereby enthusiastic internet users now seek out software that is dynamic, democratic and constantly evolving. No longer do we have to live with website packages that are out of date the minute we’ve figured out how to upload and debug them.

  5. Happy birthday WordPress. May all the great things it has made possible for so many be returned as great Karma for all the terrific developers and contributors who’ve made it happen. Well Done!
