WordPress Origin Story

2003: Stumbled into the first version of WordPress. Other than taking a few peek, interest defused and moved to other thing (diverted to desktop app programming).

2006: Started personal blog with WordPress (self hosted).

2007: Initiated Bangla Translation Project for WordPress (called Meghdut). Curated and acted as the lead translator. WordPress.com made available in Bangla (Bengali) Language.

2010: Retired old blog. Started another blog, and soon started writing ‘Haiku’.

2014: Founded Splendo.us, a little more than fabulous WordPress Theme Company.


^^ Updated on my WordPress Profile, couldn’t resist to post a copy here!


  1. Thank you for sharing. It’s really nice to know the beautiful journey you’ve gone through in WordPress. You’ve done a lot, Omo!

    I wish I could see the blog you had in 2006. What was the title?

    I read your profile. Keep sharing! :)

      Thank you, BB- I’ve a lot sweet memories around WordPress!

      Interestingly, though I’ve been in touch with the development community and the end users (Bloggers) – I find it funny that my engagement was sort of like getting closer and then jumping in a distance. :))

      Lately, having some great time with the people who contributing to the WordPress- looks like a long road we’ll be walking along side. :)

      Ops, the blog I had named ‘Banglasavvy”- I was sort of very much fan of ‘savvy’ the word and the people it describes- hahaha.

      I had it shut down long long ago, due to lack of posting- though thought about whether to push it back again, few times.

      You know, some of the posts I had on that blog would make lough for sure- those were the things so random- :P

  2. You had a nice journey so far…keep going! :)
    Thank you for sharing !
