Bring out the birthday cake: WPCandy is now four years old!


It was just four years ago, at the end of September in 2007, that Michael Castilla launched WPCandy. For the next couple of years he and his team steered the ship, until I acquired it from them and relaunched the site just last year. So while it has only been one year since I adopted WPCandy, it still has a few years under its belt.

In just the last year we’ve come quite a ways: we’ve launched Pros and Pressed Ads, both of which I’m proud of. We’ve also built up a strong reputation as an unofficial WordPress news blog, which is awesome. There’s still more to come, of course, but I’d say for 12 months of work we’re not doing too shabby.

If you have ideas, and particularly if you’ve been a part of our community here for some time, please jump over into the forums and let us know what you’d like to see from WPCandy in the future.

How long have you folks been reading WPCandy? Do you have any favorites from the last year of the site?
