History of WordPress
WP began as a blogging tool.
Years ago, WP was mainly a tool to create a blog, rather than more traditional websites.
On May 27, 2003, Matt Mullenweg announced the availability of the first version of WP based on b2 Cafelog with significant improvements.
WP now has a huge community of contributors and individual developers helping it to evolve.
Thanks to changes to the core code, you can now create any type of website with WP.
By 2015 WP had become the most popular CMS in the world.
It is the force behind 41% of the websites on the net today.
