WordPress powers almost a third of the internet, making it not only powerful, but as an open source project, WordPress is a tremendous gift to all of us. So what do you do with an amazing gift like this?
Make a living from it.
Have fun with it.
Pay it forward.
All of the above!
I make a living with WordPress, but I’m also what you might call a “serial volunteer.”
In the years that I’ve created a career with WordPress, I have also set aside time to help others through:
WordCamp organizing and speaking
Creating WordPress classes and clinics
Setting up WordPress coworking days
Creating free and discounted non-profit websites
There’s a side effect to giving and giving back with WordPress: I’ve found that the more I give…the more I’ve gained: friendships, clients, jobs, and the warm feeling that only comes from sharing good things.
Attendees can expect to learn more about the social power of WordPress, how the WordPress community functions, and how giving back is really a way to give to yourself.
