WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code enhancing the typography of everyday writing.  Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of websites.

WordPress is the world’s most popular self-hosted blogging solution.  It is also an open source CMS (Content Management Solution).  WordPress is known for it’s blogging capabilities, but being a CMS as well it can do nearly anything that can be done within a web site. Like a Forum, photo gallery, web directory, classifieds site, jobs board, news site, and more!  The advantage of doing these kinds of things within WordPress are that you can use it for either blogging or other features in as well!
