WordPress Appreciation

As a business owner wearing many hats the road to the website I envisioned was not an easy one. I tried DIY with platforms that allowed you to plug in what they thought you should have and found they were not flexible or portable. Then I hired a web developer who created my site on a platform that was unwieldy and who sometimes got between me and my customers, creating relationship discord. Then, when I needed an author site, I discovered WordPress and taught myself how to use it. WordPress provides free software and has all the flexibility and freedom I need or desire.

I want to express my appreciation to many of the developers who work to make WordPress what it is. I don’t know all the names, so the absence of a name does not mean you are not appreciated. I also appreciate all those who create plugins that provide additional flexibility for my websites.

WordPress is created by a worldwide team of passionate individuals.
