  • Monique Rogers

    I got my toes wet in the sea of web development with Drupal, because at the time it made a lot of sense. For awhile I’ll admit I was kind of snobby about that. I never expected that my first ‘real’ development gig would be with a WordPress agency. Now I get a thrill from exploring edge cases, and pushing WordPress past the limits I had wrongly assumed it had. So to me, WordPress has taught me to not be afraid to take a second look at something we had written off.

  • Idealien

    What does WordPress mean to me? It means I am able to explore both my technical and creative side in a way that helps me and my clients. Sure, I could do that with any number of other content management systems, but WordPress is the best fit for me. I’ve tried to wander away, thinking there might be something better, but WP is like a magnet that draws me back. Sometimes under protest, even. But back I come, nevertheless. It is not perfect. But it is as right as I have been able to find.

    .:: What does WordPress mean to me ::.
    WordPress is not just a tool but a whole world within itself. Today, it stands as the best CMS in the world accounting for more than million of websites over the internet. I believe WordPress doesn’t limit its approach to blogging purposes only. It is a full fledge web designing application used to design almost any kind of website with high flexibility and unlimited customizability options. May it be a personal portfolio, a community forum, an ecommerce web store or an audio/video/content blog, with WordPress you cannot only craft it but add an element of exceptionality to it.

    I remember when I started using WordPress in the late 2008, it was great. Sure it had a lot of features missing but the basic was there. Putting up simple sites/blogs, today we use it to setup complex e-commerce shops and a lot of custom sites. To see it grow with plugins and the communities is just fantastic. Today I mainly use WordPress in my work and I love the open-source.

  • Andy

    What does WordPress mean to me? Roughly about two years ago now I met a group of amazing entrepreneurs, that had the same goals as myself, which was to launch a internet tech business. Myself being the noob of the group had very little experience in this industry. However, my team at the time were not, and this wasn’t there first rodeo. Shortly after my developer introduced me to WordPress the CMS for online website. He proceeded to explain how the site builder work, as well told me that I did not need to know much code, and if I played around with it ,I would catch on faster then I thought. In all he was right for days I devoted some time to learn this simple to use CMS. Roughly after 2 months I was hooked, I couldn’t believe that there was sitebuilder like WordPress. Now a days I use WordPress for the majority of all my projects, and when individuals ask me what CMS I use , I say WordPress #FTW. WordPress has evolved my way of life, given me opportunities I could only imagen off, and has given me the fire to keep diving in to learn more. WordPress changed my life, and if this comment can help change someone else’s, then my job here is down.
    Best of luck everyone

  • Max Meliorist

    Two things. One is sentimental value – my first act of participating in the internet was my WordPress blog back in 2006. Secondly, it is irrefutable proof of large communities of humans engaging to successfully collaborate in creating things that make a larsting positive influence in each of their lives – the comments on here clearly show it – as well as the world.

  • Joe Querin

    What does WordPress to mean to me?

Since I’ve been able to dig into how WordPress works, and start building themes and plugins, I then can share my processes, and knowledge I’ve gained with the WordPress community. Which community is another thing that WordPress means to me, I’ve met some great people and I’ve learned alot from them, and I hope I’ve been able to help others as well.

    What does WordPress mean to me? It means everything. It’s how I make a living to feed my family, keep my creativity at its peak, and it’s how I got started in the web design field. WordPress helped me find and join amazing communities and has given me so many wonderful opportunities. 🙂

  • Camille

    WordPress is my living.

  • Tom Hermans

    an eco system of talented, open-minded and open-source developers dedicating themselves to push the web forward, help others through code, forum help or meetup and conference talks. My professional network has been mulitiplied ten times because of WP people I met online or IRL, or their acquaintances and I yet have to meet one person I didn’t like. It seems WP has this wonderful addicting attitude that makes people give and help out. Also: I built sites on top of it, that my co-workers or clients find very easy to use.

    What does WordPress mean to me? FOSS (free open source software) done right. It attracts both novices and professionals. It’s also founded on the principles that deliver a free open internet which attracts many to come along and extend it into the ultimate platform. WordPress can be a blog sure, but it can also be much more then that. It can be used to design just about any site you could want. Since the code is open and everyone can view it, its far more secure than some proprietary platform since its constantly scrutinized by an endless army of developers.

  • Bill Querry

    WordPress is a great tool that enables me to help me help our company grow.

    Well… WordPress is core of my work. I just love the way WordPress make easy to non-developers to create their blogs/sites and developers to create entire systens too complex as any framework could do.

    WordPress is safe, beautiful, clean, powerful… and it sounds like poetry.

  • maxemil

    WordPress has enabled me, and my clients, while used as a tool and go-to framework, to fast and effectively produce websites, which turn around business through clear and easily adaptable workflows, and gain momentum for otherwise stalled projects.
    Overall the WordPress community, users and developers are very coherent and on the same track. Being part of this journey I realize its had a major impact on my own development and interrest for web technology in context related to communication flow/reception. Thanks all 🙂

    ok, that’s probably a bit extreme. It’s damn nice way to earn a living, though..

  • Gypsy LoSavio

    WordPress, to me, means ease of building dynamic sites for clients and myself without hardcoding static anything. I love designing through CSS but creating static sites as I did 10 years ago … WordPress has been such a blessing to make the design process so much shorter and easier. The ease of just using different themes straight out of the box is a plus. But I’m a designer at heart and LOVE how easy it is to customize without doing a LOT of extensive coding with CSS, although I do that, too!

  • Linda Ursin

    WordPress made it possible for me to have my multiple sites under one umbrella, on a single platform, using different looks and functionalities without having to empty the bank.

  • Genevaday

    WordPress = KEY. The KEY that unlocked my access to the WORLD. I use WordPress on five of my domain properties. Getting my vision to the world was impossible with no code experience. The door was locked! With WordPress I have created 1. an online shop 2. school (for my niche) 3. of course a blog (for my YouTube Video’s!) 4. business mentoring website 5. jobs listing website. I am currently perfecting the sites and getting them ready for activity but the sites are just what I wanted and will allow me to give what I have to offer (my niche) to the world. I can go forward with confidence that WordPress IS THE RIGHT CHOICE for my business and creative goals! One Opensource product is the KEY that helped me unlock the WORLD.

  • Waqas J

    What does WordPress to mean? Well answer is not simple like for many of you. Because WP contributes a lot in our life from education to business to passion to perhaps almost everything if not everything. For me WP started as tool of job which turned into passion in form of freelancing and later on as a way of connecting with people who have the same interest. WP helped me in learning stuff, earning side kicks and even full time job as well. Now if I look back, I might not have achieved so much if I hadn’t found WP. So Thank you WP for bringing so much in my life 🙂

  • Greg Daniels

    WordPress is accessibility. It is a well supported platform that allows me to sufficiently (and efficiently) shape and adjust focus and workload for clients of all budget categories. As the tools streamline and expand (and boy have they), it becomes increasingly more efficient to create process trees to support clients ranging from those who are new in their business, who may not have either a complete budgetary, planning, or experience resource, to companies who have been established long enough to have an abundance of those resources, to execute their website marketing goals.

  • suraj jadhav

    WordPress gave me hope. WordPress means a lot to me . After dropped out of my college I start learning web technologies along with WordPress from online blogs and channels cause there was nothing to do. First I started as WordPress implementer .

  • Maryann Reissig

    It’s my foundation for building sites – and I always start a project with it, “Can I do this with WordPress?” – 99% of the time the answer is yes.

  • Joel

    WordPress has allowed me to build a business and be more independent.

  • Kim

    WordPress gives me the most flexible framework to begin building digital strategies for small businesses. I started building sites with a text editor back in the day, moved up to Dreamweaver and finally found WordPress. Haven’t looked back since. Thanks!!

  • Demjan

    As a developer I’m excited about a lot of the hosting a plugin bundles.

  • Pierluigi

  • Honest John & Co

    I have to say in the years I’ve been using WP, I have yet to find anything that can be adopted to such a wide array of needs. It helps me to help others.

  • Greg Cole

    WordPress allows me to run a business that delivers a diverse range of solutions while leveraging a community of like-minded designers, developers, marketers, entrepreneurs, and content creators to extend the effectiveness of my product offerings. WordPress means I am able to be far more productive by providing an ecosystem driven by other passionate creators – providing a world of opportunities and possibilities not available with any other tool set.

It is a live functioning, interactive organism that allows me to provide rapid solutions for all kinds of applications from Blogging to video, and gaming.

    I love it!

  • Anselm Urban

    What does WordPress mean to you?

    WordPress has become part of my life. As a freelancer, I’m using it to create awesome websites for clients who want to have control over the content of their sites. WordPress enables me to easily develop websites while not sacrificing creative freedom. It also opens up a whole new world of job opportunities.
    Lots of people say that WordPress is sluggish, outdated, etc., but actually, it works great for me. I like that it is sophisticated instead of bleeding edge and experimental – and with PHP7, it’s actually really fast.

  • Trevor

    For me WordPress is all about the community and high availability of code along with other like minded people looking to do some really neat things.

  • William H.

    WordPress means I can provide for my family. I owe my career to WordPress!

  • Rachelle Wise

    WordPress is a key factor in my current success as a web developer! It’s quick to develop with, and its user-friendliness can’t be beat for my end clients! I love it.

  • caramiame

    WordPress is a community, a path to creativity, and a way to make a difference in any direction your purpose leads you. Most of all, WordPress is Power to the People.

  • Prabhu

    WordrPress does not mean only a CMS for me. It means the bread and butter from which my family gets to eat. From WordPress, I can help some of the people somewhere in the world. For WordPress, I can create a website without spending a heck lot of money with a developer. Being so easy as a platform it makes me and some of the users who are not tech-savvy easily to use. Without WordPress, I can not imagine half the person I am today. Highly customizable with flexible hooks and action allows everyone who uses to build any website or blog they want. The existence of WordPress gave me the tools, resources, and community to leave their full-time job with confidence to start their own business. I am sure not now but one day due to WordPress I will be able to ditch my full-time job and make Entrepreneurship as my full-time career.

  • Kathy Long

    WordPress allows me an affordable and highly efficient way to help my clients be successful online.

  • Emyr Thomas

    WordPress can be moulded into practically anything. Like any piece of software, it has it’s issues, but the fact that it’s stood the test of time so well and is constantly evolving speaks volumes for the amazing ecosystem behind it.

  • Gordan Orlic

  • Roman

    WordPress – is the part of my life for the past 7 years. From the beginning it was just a platform for creating simple business websites, catalogs, blogs. I’d learned how to install and set up plugins, themes, write and format content. What is domain, what is hosting. Then there was a time to go a bit deeper – learn how to customize themes, html/css, how to use code snippets. Next was first custom theme created from scratch from psd layout. Then soon after woocommerce came and changed a world. I started create e-commerce websites, using premium themes and plugins from envato. Started learning how to customize plugins, how to boost wordpress, optimize it in many ways. Then adaptive design. Then modern development process – node.js, npm, git, gulp, bower, sass, vagrant, ancieble, composer, poedit, easyengine etc. And I’d learned that everything without any cources and studies, just by practice and wordpress community. By WordPress itself.
    And I also earned some money by wordpress too)))

  • Durgesh Kalya

    It is definitely an alternate universe for me. Where I can be myself, post my thoughts and make some money.

    My job

  • Scott Dunn

    I use WordPress everyday for my own men’s ministry site. It helps me reach people I couldn’t normally.
    I also have helped others set up dozens of WP based sites. It’s been awesome watching this thing grow.

  • Joel Stickney

    WordPress is the glue holding together my business, my growth as a developer, and one of my main social circles of friends in the community, all of us WordPress-ing together. Basically, it means a lot.

  • Juraj

    WordPress Is a great platform to learn to code and get proficient with it.

  • Darlene

    I love WordPress and have used it for many years but this year I am learning deeper – love it! this would be a great opportunity for me.

  • Pritush

    I started using WordPress since V2. Though I’m not a professional I enjoying using WordPress in sites and also design sites for friends. WordPress has helped me to establish my online persona in quick and easy way.
    Its really amazing that WP is suitable for starter as well as professional for complex projects. This is the reason I have always been suggesting WP as CMS.

  • Scott Hack

    To me using WordPress means empowerment. I can build and publish something on my own ( mostly ) without having to get outside assistance.

    WordPress allows me the luxury of living a freelance lifestyle and providing for my clients and my family. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.

  • Scott Hartley

    WordPress too me is probably the greatest piece of open source software that web developers have ever received. It allows anyone to contribute to shape its future, it allows the leads to pass the torch to some of the most gifted web developers and to lead the way to a better experience for anyone. WordPress has come a long from being a humble little blogging software to becomg a full blown content management system. With tools such as Multisite to plugins such as BuddyPress, WooCommerce or bbPress WordPress continues to push the boundaries

  • João

    WordPress is part of My life. I can’t live without coding on web and wordpress provides me the fastest & easyeste way. I’m proud to say that I use WordPress since I’m fifteen Years Old.

    WordPress is responsible for living a better life. It allows me to build beautiful and functional websites fast and with ease. Plus the community is really awesome. The WCEU talks inspired me to get out of my comfort zone and contribute to this awesome platform.

  • Mounir

    WordPress is for me a way to interract with many peple from all over the world. The spirit in the community really helps to give me back faith the humanity.

  • Karim

    WP is like opening a pandora’s box to me.

  • Pranjal Gupta

    I discovered WordPress back in 2009, since today I’ve been creating numerous sites with a footer, “powered by WordPress.”

    Not just creating sites, I was so impressed with WordPress, that I started blogging about it, and I created a blog called as Blogosense.

    So here I am using WordPress since, last 7 years, and many years ahead!

Y’all are great people, let’s keep up the great work!

  • Tajim

    WordPress Means everything to me. WordPress has helped me put food on my family’s table over half a decade now and WordPress is the only CMS I work with.

    WordPress Jindabad !

  • Donna Cecilia

    WordPress means taking my site to a whole new level. Elegant Themes also helped.

  • Lisa McMahon

    WordPress is how I make my living. I’ve built websites since 1995 but using WordPress has changed the way I work, what I deliver to my customers, and my level of productivity. WordPress is so powerful yet flexible and the support of the development community is like none other!

  • Jake Hawkes

    WordPress is excellent open source software. When I first started looking into an OS CMS I used Nuke-PHP and Drupal. I personally didn’t like all the setup in Drupal, just too many dang options but the taxonomy was a killer blow to all the competitors. Once WordPress opened up, or I realized I could write custom meta fields and post types easily I was hooked. I learned that the post table is more or less a blob and that cacheing is critical, but it is a slick little tool for a MySQL backend that works well.

  • John C

    I used WordPress to power an online degree program, and now I use it to help clients communicate their ideas.

  • Gary Gray

    WordPress allows me to work when I want and where I want. No more need to be on-site for a job or client any longer, as I can work from wherever I please.

  • Pablo Domínguez

    WordPress is my favorite tool to build websites and publish content since I first started using it about 5 years ago. It’s completely changed the way I see the web, by taking me closer to open source development and a community bursting with activity.

  • Rod

    it means lost time. always fixing something/learning.

  • Jessica Morrow

    WordPress means a chance to get off disability. I have raised and homeschool a disabled daughter through high school all while on disability myself. Now that she’s in college, I can see a path forward with WordPress to a financially independent life. I have no desire to be rich, just to rise above my circumstances and stand on my own financially. Plus, it’s heaps of fun ?!

  • Gaurav

    WordPress is like a Game Changer of my life. Now it’s a important part of my life. I love to create beautiful websites in WordPress.

  • Ryan Ott

    WordPress allows me to create incredible experiences for personal projects, beautiful interfaces for site visitors, and share it all with the community that helps to make it better all the time.

  • Andita Sely Bestoro

    WordPress? Not just a software, but became one of the sources of my income, part of my life.

    As simple as that

  • Hamish

    I have fun making nice things with it – and at times it’s supplemented my income, at other times been my sole income.

  • Pradeep Singh

    WordPress makes it possible for me to do what I love!

  • Jason Hop

    A way for me to live my life mission that I came to this rock to do.
    A way for my creativity to ouze out

  • Mark Zahra

    Being introduced to WordPress was one of the best things to happen to me. I now work solely on WordPress projects as part of a great remote team and I couldn’t ask for a better job!

  • Teresa G

    WP has opened the door to expanding my skills and enhancing my career.

  • Albert

    WordPress means the small mom-and-pop clients can have a versatile affordable website.

  • Christopher Neetz

    What does WordPress mean to you?

    WordPress means freedom for us and our clients. We love how it enables and lifts communities to levels of empowerment that was never before possible. Because WordPress is so widely accepted and supported, there are endless extendable possibilities to enjoy and revel in.

  • David

    WordPress is the backbone of my site. It makes it much easier to focus on writing and not worry about the nuts and bolts behind the scenes.

  • ile

    WordPress is the reason i got into webdev.

  • Kai Viola

    WordPress means my health (mental health advocacy), my server (would never have taken it on without writing a plugin for WordPress to test something I thought I understood – turns out I didn’t). WordPress is the go to tool for me – I don’t use anything else to build websites, I work with themes constantly, and I run my businesses through them. It’s a building block, and foundation, but, because I’m disabled, it’s also my freedom. I’m free because of WordPress – I get to write and build my writing platform, but I have so many great things from following WordPress to the person that I am.
    It may sound like you could swap this for a religion, but in some ways it’s right. I worship at the altar of WordPress and WordPress is a kind deity 😉
    Seriously, WordPress is as much a part of my world as my exercise, my server, my writing. It lets me do everything I need to do in my world, either because I know it’s not going to break easily, or because it speeds everything up. I’ve been blogging since the days we had to hand code new links into includes files, and before blogging was a thing – it’s so hard to remember how different it was now, and WordPress changed and levelled the playing field for me.
    Thanks WordPress!

  • Ben

    WordPress empowers us to create Websites that are tailored to the requirements of our clients.

  • Marcel Stephan

    What WordPress means to me? Well quite frankly: a lot! Since I discovered WordPress and decided to start my own business a lot of happy customers have great websites now.
    Now I only have to change my own, but with so many customers, I cannot find the time to get myself a new theme…

  • Robert Gillmer

    Well, since I run a WordPress-based web design firm, WordPress means a roof over my head and food on my table. 🙂

    Beyond just that, the open source aspect of WordPress means that we developers come together to collaborate and cooperate much more so than we would do so with proprietary software.

    Most importantly, it means that my customers fully own the website they’ve purchased. There’s no feeling of being beholden to any company, including my own.

  • Jeremy Josey

    I want to win something!!!….lol

  • Jason Weber

    WordPress means I have the ability to tap into my creativity.

  • Roberto Villela

    WordPress changed how I work with web years ago…

    Today I live only by WordPress website development, teach WordPress on my school and give trainings to local business in WP and Inbound Marketing

    The most friendly user CMS I used.
    WordPress today is my life!

  • Michael Quinn

    WordPress gives me freedom to create a business whatever way I see fit. WordPress grows as we grow. Using other CMS for other clients – you realise how awesome it is not to be stuck in 2012 or whenever their CMS stopped improving.

  • Avash Poudel

    For me, WordPress means a blogging mate and a cool weapon to trade for a money.

  • Rajat

    I’m business graduate who once had a handsome salary with 6 hours of daily travel to job. WordPress gave me freedom and Independence to work at home and use that travel time with my loved ones.

  • Evan Herman

    WordPress is one of the most powerful tools of our time. Providing free speech to millions, and thousands of jobs to so many developers/designers – there are very few things greater that you can get for FREE.

  • Phillip Cornwell

    WordPress is my life. I have my current job because of WordPress. It is the reason I can support my family. Because of Meetups and WordCamps it is also the main subject of any social interactions I have. I literally LIVE WordPress.

    WordPress lets people build websites that THEY, not a company, are in control of.

    For now it’s just more of a hobby than a full time job. Trying to learn the basics of javascript and I really hope to be able to finish my first project.

    WordPress became a way of life. It’s all about meeting people (WordCamps), helping each other (contribute to WP/plugins/themes) and serving clients (through website development).

  • Mirko

    Started as a fun project but due to the easy use of wordpress I discovered a new passion which is becoming a tra
