Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that WordPress is big. How big? This content management software now powers 25% of the web. According to w3techs.com,
“WordPress is used by 58.7% of all the websites whose content management system we know. This is 25.0% of all websites.”
For some perspective, the next highest two are Joomla and Drupal, who have 2.8% and 2.1% of the marketshare, respectively.
WordPress has been around since 2003, and I’ve been using it almost exclusively for the last 8 years since. I’ve been to, organized, and sponsored WordCamps around the country, written insanely popular plugins, organized WordPress meetups, written WordPress books, and I’ve even put it on my cars.
It’s been a wild ride, and it is great to see others enjoying something that’s been such a huge part of my life for the better part of a decade.
