What is WordPress
I thought to myself while using other web hosting companies that utilize WordPress to build websites: Why don’t I just have WordPress host my website as well since I am using their software to create it. I found WordPress easy to work with, and it made more sense to me.
Working with WordPress, I worked with another partner in this journey of mine: Google, and their product called G Suite.
I kept blaming all these products that I had purchased and made them the main reason for my misery. Well, actually it has been my fault all the way. I am the one who decided to purchase the products. I am the one who decided to purchase a business premium plan – and that explains it all, I got myself into this ordeal all by myself.
My problem was a lack of knowledge of what I wanted and needed at the time. What I wanted was to talk and express myself. All I needed was WordPress.
This journey brought me to a new goal: my online gallery and my blog page:
At least I am starting to understand which is which, and their different roles.
Looking back, I do not regret the nights without sleep and the frustration of my loved ones trying to help me: My husband, and engineer – but not a happy one – his patience when he is trying to help me is about 10 minutes maximum; My son who’s patience is even shorter (5 minutes maximum); and the collaboration of WordPress’s happiness engineers who try to communicate with me – someone that did not understand what she wanted, or what she was doing. I believe that I have been on this journey of building my blog page and my online gallery for at least at least two years. Yes, that is what it takes a mom that wants to become a part of the millennials world.
I decided to do find out about the history of WordPress, and its beginning. To my surprise the person who started with this PHP (Personal home page) was
|Born||22 November 1968|
|Alma mater||University of Waterloo|
|Occupation||Distinguished Engineer, Etsy|
who never intended for PHP to become a new programming language – it grew organically, he noted in retrospect: “I don’t know how to stop it, there was never any intent to write a programming language”. He had absolutely no idea how to write a programming language “I just kept adding the next logical step on the way”. He inspires me. I consider him an artist.
My WordPress has shown me endless interesting and educational resources. It has led me to new ideas and nice communities – all united by a common interest whatever the topic. There is a community for anything that you like to do and share with others.
