Community

It seems much longer ago than September 2014 that Matt Mullenweg wrote about the WordPress Community and giving 5 percent.

I had been volunteering as a moderator with WordPress.tv for a few months. When I read Matt’s article, I suddenly realized that I was a part of something so much bigger than I originally thought. The WordPress Community is truly global. Through my involvement with WordPress TV, I have chatted with people not only in North America but in Asia and Europe too.

A few days ago there was an article on the Torque website called “11 Ways To Contribute To WordPress” This is a very good read on several different ways that people can contribute to WordPress.

In mid January there was a posting by Jen on the Make WordPress Community which included a flyer that can be printed out and used at WordPress event.

Here is the link to the flyer: https://make.wordpress.org/community/files/2015/01/getinvolved-flyer-2015-v001jm.pdf

I plan to attend WordCamps in St. Louis and Dayton next month. Back to back weekends of WordPress awesomeness for sure! I am going to check with the organizers about bringing the flyers to hand out.
