WordPress, the ultimate blogging platform which has turned many bloggers ( both part-time and full-time) enhance their blogging skills and hence earning $$ to quit their daily job.
Before blog was used as only personal dairy and hence was limited to access to only those persons who wants to share their personal information, but things have changed now, now bloggers blog to earn money through various channels like Google Adsense, Affiliate Marketing and more services and hence improvise their writing skills.
WordPress was first released by Matt Mullenweg in May 27,2003 as a fork of b2/cafelog. [via: Wikipedia ]
