  1. Hi Ahsan,

    It’s tough to imagine that WordPress is already 10 years old! I still remember the time when I started on the Blogger platform and how I was guided to switch to WordPress, and there has been no looking back ever since.

    I loved the images you shared in this post showing all the various versions of WordPress – and I this only getting better by the day, isn’t it?

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend 🙂
