Why WPBeginner (Our Story)
My name is Syed Balkhi, and I’m the founder of WPBeginner. The WPBeginner story begins back in 2006 when I first discovered WordPress while searching for a blogging platform. It didn’t take me long to fall in love with the platform. In 2008, we decided to use WordPress for all of our client websites. This came with a set of challenges: PDF guides and 1-on-1 walk-throughs were incredibly time consuming and inefficient. I scoured the web to find a resource that could help my clients and other new WordPress users. At the time, most WordPress tutorials were written by developers for developers. That’s why I launched WPBeginner on July 4th, 2009 as a resource targeted for WordPress beginners and DIY users. Since then, WPBeginner has become the largest free WordPress resource site in the industry.
Webmaster’s Note: I have found WPBeginner to be a helpful resource that has gotten me out of more than one bind. It’s a wonderful resource that is generally well written with sound solutions. As the name implies it’s geared toward low-level questions and challenges, which can seem pretty high-level if you’re a novice with WordPress. They may not have every answer for every WP question, but it’s a great place to check.
