How the Ben got started in WordPress
Ben always had a background of a software engineer. He’s always been interested in publishing and self publishing. Ben was working on B2evolution and then realized around WordPress 1.5 that he was on the wrong horse. He wrote a script that would move a B2evolution blog to WordPress.
