I was around when WordPress was born and have been building sites with this popular platform for many years now. WordPress mania powers about a quarter of the Web at this writing. It can be used by anyone with solid computer skills who has the inclination to dive into it. However, there is typically a wide gap between the work of a novice enthusiast and a skilled professional. It’s the detail, nuance and the knowledge and understanding of design and technology that delivers pixel-perfect, engaging, high-functioning websites on the world’s most popular Web framework.
Many of the sites shown above were built some time ago and the advances and functionality with WordPress have changed dramatically. But it’s still fun to slap them up there. We can all see the difference a few years makes.
