What do you enjoy most about working in WordPress?
There are three things that I enjoy most about working in WordPress. First, there’s the community. The WordPress community is filled with the friendliest, most helpful, and most knowledgeable people. Two, the accessibility of the technology is impressive. Anyone can have an internet presence with WordPress. Lastly, there’s longevity. WordPress isn’t going anywhere. Its capabilities and presence just continue to grow.
What do you love most about your Post Status membership?
What I love most about my Post Status membership is all the news and information. I always know what’s going on in the world of WordPress.
What business/web/WordPress advice do you have for others in our industry?
My advice for others in WordPress is to embrace, support, and propel the forward motion of the diversity of the WordPress community. Let’s celebrate and uplift the next women and nonbinary release squad. Diversity fuels creativity.
