WordPress will be 14 years old in May 2018. I remember trying it out on a local development server and wondered how this clunky program would ever make it in the real world! Fast forward and WordPress now powers more than 30% of the global web. If you want to learn more or keep up to date with the latest WordPress news, then I recommend that you follow these WordPress blogs. I keep their feed in my Feedly reader so I can keep up on my desktop or my iPad.
