What do you enjoy most about working in WordPress?
When it comes to the actual software itself, I love the the incredible flexibility and options for handling a websites needs via plugins/themes, as well as the incredible standardization. From the backend, if you’ve seen one WordPress site, you’ve mostly seen them all, and that provides a consistent and quality customer experience. As a whole, I truly enjoy the amazing WordPress community!
What do you love most about your Post Status membership?
Post Status gives me the opportunity to network with so many amazing human beings. I had an incredible time at WCUS this year where I was able to finally put a lot of faces to names. The first thing I did when I got home was join Post Status!
