What do you enjoy most about working in WordPress?
When I work in WordPress, it looks so native, user-friendly and easy for me to do anything. Comparing to other platforms like Wix, they are also good, but WordPress is closer for me and more familiar. So it feels like you always drive your BMW car, and when you try switching to another car, you can not accept it, and you feel inside it's not yours, it doesn't belong to you! And you return back to your lovely BMW.
What do you love most about your Post Status membership?
The biggest value in Post Status is the community of WordPress developers, authors, marketeers, and influencers. And it's awesome that we can talk to each other, discuss WordPress-related topics, problems, and cases. This way I get more expertise and understanding of the WordPress market today.
What business/web/WordPress advice do you have for others in our industry?
Today is not the best period of time for WordPress. I think the WordPress community members should stick together to learn, help each other, get expertise, advice, and grow business together.
