IN HIS OWN WORDS


My name is Syed Balkhi, and I’m the founder of WPBeginner.

The WPBeginner story begins back in 2006 when I first discovered WordPress while searching for a blogging platform.

It didn’t take me long to fall in love with the platform. In 2008, we decided to use WordPress for all of our client websites.

This came with a set of challenges: PDF guides and 1-on-1 walk-throughs were incredibly time consuming and inefficient.

I scoured the web to find a resource that could help my clients and other new WordPress users.

At the time, most WordPress tutorials were written by developers for developers.

That’s why I launched WPBeginner on July 4th, 2009 as a resource targeted for WordPress beginners and DIY users.

Since then, WPBeginner has become the largest free WordPress resource site in the industry.
