WordPress 10th Anniversary T-Shirt Giveaway! (Over)

Happy birthday to WordPress! It’s just about a decade old, can you believe it? I sure can’t. Everyday I learn something new about WordPress. To honor this CMS we’re giving away 10 t-shirts for WordPress’ 10th birthday!

A Little About WordPress

WordPress is super popular, and has consistently garnered interest since it’s introduction on May 27, 2003. It’s now so popular that over 100,000 new WordPress run websites are created everyday. WordPress is easy to use and setup (as we all know), so it’s no wonder that roughly 20% of all people on the web choose to use WordPress. If you want to add anything to your website there is sure to be a theme, plugin, or widget that meets your needs. Restaurants, magazines, law offices, veterinary offices, personal blogs, and so much more all rely on WordPress to keep their site running. I personally can’t imagine using anything else. And it’s because of all of these people that I, and thousands of others, are able to make a living. So thank you WordPress! And thank you to everyone using it!

And just in case you wanted to learn a little bit more about WordPress, Yoast put together this super informative  infographic about WordPress Stats last year. And if you poke around the WordPress.com site you can learn some neat facts about WordPress and see some of its statistics.

Previous Giveaway (Now Over)

Enter for a chance to win one of 10 FREE t-shirts! To celebrate this momentous occasion, we’re giving away 10 of the commemorative WordPress 10th Anniversary T-shirts. If you’re chosen as one of the winners we’ll order the shirt of your choice (black or silver) and send it straight to your doorstep (possibly with extra WPExplorer swag).

DISCLOSURE: This giveaway is NOT sponsored by Automattic ( WordPress ). The staff here at WPExplorer will purchase the T-Shirts for the winners and send them.

    The joys of WordPress I have been tinkering with computers since the dark old days of the Commodore Vic 20 and the Timex Sinclair. I've used Commodore's old OS, MS DOS and derivatives, CP/M, BeOS, Apple DOS and Systems 1 through 9, OS/2, Linux / Unix, MacOS X, Windows from 3 through 8. Along the way, I've learned to write code in dBase / Foxbase, Pascal, C, C++, Machine code, several flavors of basic, CSS, HTML, and a few more. In fact, one of the reasons I quit the computer science track in college was due to the way it was evolving. It seemed as though as soon as I had one language down, another would come along and I was a novice all over again. I realized I would have to spend the remainder of my life in school just to keep up. Graphic design - Photoshop, Illustrator, QuarkXPress and the like seemed far more stable at the time. Their features were getting upgraded, sure, but the upgrades meant tweaking my knowledge base - not unlearning and relearning all over again. However, even with the admittedly great programs, I spent a lot of time recreating graphics and editing photos to create a better advertisement or promotion or website. A lot of work went into every product or project and a lot more editing followed. Many long, sleepless nights and a lot (I mean A LOT) of coffee was consumed. More than one gray hair was sprouted, and, on rare occasions, a discouraging word was, indeed, heard. There, about 10 years ago, something changed all of that for me. This wee little program written in PHP was released by 2 people I had never heard of... some Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little. That PHP was coupled with a bit of MySQL and WordPress was born. In fairness, I must admit I actually didn't start playing with it 'til around version 1.3 or thereabout. But I've been here ever since and I must say that it is the greatest thing since sliced bread... Now, instead of fiddling and fussing with code for hours (I still do this sometimes, but it's a lot less taxing as I generally know where to look, now), I can implement. Time is spent creating something great instead of just beginning the framework on which to maybe begin, someday, something that might be good... And even with all that, it's still growing and there is still so much I can learn, and I know that there is a great, sharing community out there to help me learn those things. They're on the Internet and at local meetups and WordCamps. It's more than a program. It's a community... a growing and evolving entity. Happy Birthday WordPress! And, many great returns!

  71. I used WordPress for a number of years as a blogging platform, but my sites were developed with HTML and CSS using Dreamweaver. Other developers suggested Drupal or Joomla for web development; I looked at both programs and decided that Joomla was not for me and Drupal seemed to have a pretty steep learning curve. I watched WordPress evolve into a program that was ideal for web development, and it was a program with which I was already familiar. I started using WordPress for site development and it has improved the development process and provided my clients with a better end product. Happy Birthday, WordPress!
  72. Ben4Short says:
