Happy 5th Birthday WordPress!

Reposted after an accidental delete (Lesson learned: Don’t do draft management while distracted)

WordPress blogging software is 5 years old today. My first WordPress install was v1.5 when I still ran my self-hosted domain. According to the Release Log, that was back in February 2005. (Before that I coded all the HTML in EditPad!) WP has continuously handed out some fabulous party favors along the way. Thanks guys!

As we say in Hebrew, “until 120!”, and then some. If anyone reading this is going to the party in San Francisco, please buy the development team a round of drinks on me. They’ve certainly earned it. )

Many thanks to chotda for the use of her flickr photo.
