What do you enjoy most about working in WordPress?
The community! It's amazing.
I also love the flexibility of WordPress. Because it is open source it allows you to do what you want with WordPress, including adding code, plugins , themes and more.
What do you love most about your Post Status membership?
The energy that comes from the people in Post Status, and the support that comes from Post Status is a big deal for me working from home. Coming out of the pandemic, the Post Status team has allowed me to connect with colleagues from around the world. These people are amazing! I have collaborated with many people in the Post Status community and have had several on my podcast. These relationships have developed in the community over time as we support each other.
