December 13, 2018 — 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.
