I got this note the other day reminding me that I started using WordPress.com 9 years ago.
The friend I was helping set up his site still uses the same theme, so you can see the first post almost exactly the same way it looked in 2009.
I’ve learned a lot about writing for the web and the internet in general since then, but through the whole journey WordPress.com was with me. I wrote about how much I loved my WordPress.com site in 2011, even though everyone knew “real” websites were self hosted.
I never expected when I started this journey that I’d work for Automattic someday, but I am thankful everyday that this is where I’ve ended up.
If you also love WordPress, and think you might like to join me, We are hiring!
Smart. Kind. Funny. At least that's the goal. I care about encouraging girls to consider STEM careers, helping nonprofits be the best they can be, cats, and German-style boardgames.
