How were you first introduced to WordPress?
I wanted a blog to add on to my photography business’ website, and slowly discovered that WordPress could be much more than just a blog.
What do you like about it?
I like that WordPress can accommodate anything I can dream up, if I can implement it. What I love most about WordPress is the community–not only have I been able to find countless answers online because others have shared their solutions, but I’ve also been able to personally connect with developers and users worldwide.
What do you do with WP now?
I build custom websites for small businesses, nonprofits, and individuals. I also build some plugins.
How has the WP community (local and beyond) helped you?
In general, the WordPress community’s commitment to sharing knowledge online through forums, blogs, and articles has allowed me to find answers to my questions much more rapidly than I could on my own. I’ve also been able to connect with users around the world who enjoy working together, discussing, and helping each other solve problems and create new solutions.
Did learning WP lead to any significant professional, personal, creative changes in your life?
I’ve been able to build my business on WordPress, which is pretty awesome.
What would you tell a brand new user?
Don’t be afraid to experiment and try things. WordPress is surprisingly difficult to break!
