It’s worth spending a few moments this weekend reviewing Matt Mullenweg’s State of the Word from WordCamp San Francisco. He talks about some stats, some changes, and some new changes to WordPress coming down the pipe.
One of the neatest things that I took away was later in his talk about making WordPress “more human” and how many of the changes are so slight that you may have never even noticed them – but they are there and they have made the WordPress experience even better.
I’ve also been impressed with the idea of how rapidly WordPress is being adopted globally as a go-to solution for business, individuals, and website owners and how 14.7% of all websites in the world are running WordPress (and 22% of new websites are using WordPress as well). Up and to the right baby!
In Matt’s own words:
The state of the word is strong.
This is the truth!
What are you most excited about in terms of the future of WordPress? What are you the most thankful for?
I know that for myself (and I’ve shared this more than a few times) I couldn’t be more thankful to Matt and the incredible team around WordPress since it’s helped me create a very fulfilling vocation and job!
And, I wouldn’t be having nearly as much fun with my career if it wasn’t for WordPress!
