In 2003, what started as a simple blog publishing software has now become an application framework that can be used to create personal websites, news portals, eCommerce stores, communities, forums, and almost any kind of website imaginable.
WordPress was used by more than 31.5% of the top 10 million websites as of February 2017. WordPress is also reportedly the most popular website management or blogging system in use on the Web, supporting more than 60 million websites.
If you decide to go with WordPress, you will definitely be in good company. The New York Times, CNN, Mashable, and eBay, all run their blogs on the most popular CMS in the world – WordPress.
We can’t deny the platform is creating job opportunities, whether they are entrepreneurial (such as in freelance) or the more traditional sort of employment. Either way, people’s careers are being affected, and often times it can be by surprise.
There are hundreds of WordPress related jobs posted on freelancing platforms like freelancer.com, Upwork, Fiverr, People Per Hour etc. making it a lucrative profession for aspiring developers and freelancers.
WordPress Professionals in Pakistan Take Notice
Imagine, you live in a major city but WordPress is virtually unknown. Websites with presence are run by the government, there’s no WordCamp or meetup or startup culture, and people think you make keyboards when you say you’re a computer engineer.
Now imagine that same city five years later. A multitude of diversified voices can be heard via blogs and websites, the most recent WordPress meetup attracts 300+ attendees, its online WordPress community has 5000+ registered members, at least 10 new WordPress businesses are born each year, and WooCommerce helps dozens of businesses start in living rooms and garages. And the shift began when everyone said a task was impossible.
Attendees can connect with other industry professionals or just learning about how WordPress can make a difference in their lives.
