WordPress was launched 20 years ago on May 27, 2003.
It’s been 2 decades since the launch and the WordPress eco-system is stronger than ever.
WordPress survived the test of time and became the number one used platform for not only just blogs but a huge variety of websites.
Where was I 20 years ago on that day?
I don’t remember the specifics but in the year 2003, I had just moved passed high school (10th grade). I moved out of my state to another for senior high school (grades 11th and 12th).
I didn’t even know what WordPress was back then. In fact, the internet was a scarcity in those days. Personal computers/laptops were not as normal in households as they are now. The phones were not smart. We had one of those Nokia phones with that snake game but no internet.
So, it is amazing that technology like WordPress was launched somewhere in the world.
