Great answer. I also started using WP 12 years ago.

Awesome! 💯
Good old times. A post about PHP Contact form I wrote had gone viral in 2006 and that's how I got into the web. Clients wanted me to build their contact forms.

In 2007, when Contact Form 7 was released (that's why it's called CF7) — I fell in love with how easy it was to build forms with WordPress.

And then I started building plugins coz that was the most exciting part of WordPress. Just search and then install it and you're good to go.
