WordPress is 10 years old today. Here is how wordpress is used around the world.

WordPress, the blogging and content management system, is 10-years old today. The platform has evolved in the past decade from being a basic blogging service to a news and media platform for major brand names and businesses around the world.

Started by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little, WordPress is an open source service where anyone can make modifications to the code to improve their blog and make it something that works for them.

Bloggers who use WordPress are able to apply design themes to their sites while also integrating third-party plugins easily. Since it’s open source software, there isn’t a need for an approval process before someone can implement a new feature.  GWOP Magazine, CNN, TechCrunch, Mashable, Dow Jones, UPS, TED, BOSSIP, RAPRADAR all use a wordpress platform to get the message across for their business.

“Thanks Matt and Mike for creating wordpress.  Without you there would be no GWOP Magazine”
