WP Mayor is 5 Years Old!

WP Mayor is 5 years old! I started this site in November 2010 as a way of sharing what I was learning while developing WordPress websites for clients (I ran an agency in Malta at the time).

I’m very thankful of how the site has grown during the past five years, it’s a long time in internet years and while others have fallen by the wayside we have continued going strong. Thankfully this is no longer a one man job, Alyona and Mark have been doing a great job, and we also need to thank the many guest bloggers who have contributed and continue to contribute regularly.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank all the regular readers, as well as the many WordPress plugin/theme developers and service providers who have worked with us throughout the year as we strive to lead WordPress users to the best resources.
