WordPress’s humble beginnings as an open-sourced blog platform are ancient history. Today, it’s the reigning king of the internet. While we’ve played around with other diy platforms like wix, weebly, and shopify (usually at the insistence of our clients) we’ve always gone back to wordpress.
WordPress is now the 800LB gorilla in the room and nobody can deny it. They’ve taken over the internet and with that has come a lot of great benefits for the users. The fact that it started and remains as an open source platform is truly mind-blowing.
