This week’s host is Doug Stewart. Doug can be found on Twitter at @zamoose and online literalbarrage.org.
How the Doug got started in WordPress
Doug got started on Blogger. When he began looking around, he wanted to find something that would allow him to install something at home and use it. WordPress hit 1.0, and he installed it on my home machine in 2004. He then got involved in the Philly Meetup in early 2005.
