I was introduced to WordPress in college. I loved its approach to theme development, and the flexibility provided by plugins. Everything made sense, and it was easy to get up and running.
I’ve been a WordPress advocate ever since.
After moving to Toronto in 2010, I started to co-organize WordPress meetups and WordCamps; lead beginner workshops and classes; work on WordPress products; and work with agencies that built client sites on WordPress.
Although I’m no longer organizing meetups, I’m still very much an advocate for WordPress – and WordPress still plays a huge role in my day-to-day work.
We’re also WordPress users ourselves. The GoDaddy Blog, our company publication, is built on WordPress.
With 10+ years of WordPress experience under my belt, I want to pass along some of my own experiences (and opinions) to others who are just getting started.
