WordPress Approaches 10 Year Anniversary!

As many of you may well know WordPress is approaching it’s 10 year anniversary since the initial release way back on 27th May 2003.

WordPress was founded by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little who took a fork of b2/cafelog to form the basis of the WordPress we know of and love today. As of December 2011, WordPress version 3.0 had been downloaded over 65 million times!

The latest release version 3.5 has to date been downloaded a total of 16.8 million times…

WordPress has an ever growing community of developers who contribute there time and skills to help make WordPress what it is today. With the help of people like you the community currently have 1,742 themes and 24,455 plugins in the repository and that number just keeps growing!

With WordPress 3.6 slated for release in the coming weeks, I can only see that WordPress is only going to get better and better.
