Happy 10th Birthday, WordPress!

WordPress turns 10 years old today. So Happy Birthday, big boy!

Here’s the announcement of the very first release where co-founder Matt Mullenweg announces the likes of a blogroll manager, smart line breaks, and manual excerpts. Obviously, it’s come a long way.

The current number of WordPress-run sites are a little mind-boggling and also hard to keep up with: reportedly somewhere over 20% of sites on the web now run WordPress. The number of new sites added daily quickly makes any figures you might find old news.

If you’d like to celebrate WordPress’ 10th with others who appreciate what it is and how far it’s come, you can check out a local meetup.
