  1. HI Ahsan,

    Ah…I never knew it was WordPress 10th anniversary yesterday 🙂

    I like the way you remember all these small events and occasions and how you integrate them to write your posts here – wonderful indeed.

    I’m just glad that I switched to WordPress when I did a year back because earlier my blogs were on Bloggers, and it was only when I learnt about the power of WordPress, did I shift on them.

    Thanks for sharing this and such amazing facts with us. Have a nice week ahead 🙂
