Today, July 1st, is officially Unofficial International WordPress Day, sponsored by the people over at WPCandy. I hope it’s not too late in the day for my post. I just wanted to make a quick “thank you” to Automattic, because:
- WordPress is a great blogging platform and CMS
- It has an excellent community, of which I’m proud to be a part of
- I run pretty much all of my sites with WordPress
- Akismet is an invaluable spam fighting service
- bbPress is a great forum script, the perfect complement to a WordPress blog
I really can’t thank Automattic enough for making WordPress what it is today.
In the comments, why don’t you say why you love WordPress? Would you ever consider switching away from WordPress if a bigger and better platform came along?
It may also be worth making a comment over on that WPCandy post to be entered in their competition.
Happy Unofficial WordPress Day!
Looking for web hosting?
Question: What's the best type of web hosting?
Answer: The kind you don't have to worry about.
And that's precisely why I recommend HostGator. I've been using them myself for years and they've been nothing short of superb.
Fast load times, great support, WordPress-friendly, and good prices. Not much more you can ask for.
New customers can get 25% off of any HostGator web hosting package with the coupon: themelab25percentoffNote: I am a HostGator affiliate, but that doesn't make my recommendation any less genuine.
