Blogging platform turned CMS WordPress, so important to so many Bookswarm projects, turned ten years old this week. That’s a pretty good run, and as a platform WordPress goes from strength to strength – we have used it to build blogs, corporate websites, Extranets, microsites and more; its plugins have enabled us to do everything from offer Hangman games to kids to create complex bibliographic data management tools for publishers, and its theme language has enabled us to produce many beautiful-looking projects.

WordPress creator Matt Mullenweg has written a love letter to his offpsring on his blog, and Bookswarm would like to add a rousing chorus of “Happy Birthday, dear WordPress” too!
