If you are good at maths, the WordPress we love just survived 6575 days ( 18 years ). This journey was not at all lonely. WordPress powers 40 % of the web according to various statistics.
I have been using it since 2007. And it turns out a lot of things changed over a period of time. I was pretty much active in the theme space. And then also in the plugins but now a days prefer the simple setup these days.
