About WP Mayor


Our Founding

WP Mayor began back in 2010 when Jean Galea, our founder, wanted to document everything he’s learning about WordPress as he ran his web agency. It was a great way to keep track of what he’s learning, but also to share those lessons with others around the world. Slowly but surely, WP Mayor grew to one of the most popular WordPress blogs in the world.



Having run WP Mayor for many years, Jean involved Alyona Galea (Jean’s wife) and Mark Zahra (Jean’s cousin) to keep the website moving forward as he started to focus on other areas. During these years, WP Mayor kept providing readers with product reviews, tutorials, articles, and much more, ensuring that we live up to the reputation built by Jean himself. New ideas led to the creation of marketing services for WordPress business owners and an improved operations setup.


A New Leaf

A decade in, Gabriella Galea (Jean’s sister) joined initially as Content Manager, later becoming Project Operations Manager in 2022. Gaby has spearheaded our efforts in revamping WP Mayor to bring it into 2020 with a new website design and a revamped way of doing things on the back-end. Gaby and Mark are now running the show and the project continues to be a bootstrapped effort till this day.
