Here in the states, it is Thanksgiving. The time of year when most stop to think about what it is they are thankful for. In keeping with that tradition, I wanted to give my thanks to the WordPress development team but the thanks doesn’t end there. I also pass on my thanks to each and every one of you who have contributed code to the WordPress project. I’m no coder and I appreciate those who are to help guide me around the more interesting parts of WordPress. A very special thanks goes out to plugin and theme developers. You folks really enable end users to take WordPress up to the next level. I would also like to give thanks and recognize those who cover WordPress within the community. These are sites which keep users informed, provide great information, and increase the end users knowledge of what this piece of software is capable of doing. Each time I go to work on the weekend, I remind myself how thankful I am to those who produce podcasts centered around WordPress. Without these podcasts, my 9PM – 5AM shift would be extremely boring.
Despite everything that is going on within the world of content publishing, the fact remains that WordPress is still the easiest way to publish content onto the web. For that alone, I think is worthy of being thankful.
If you feel thankful for WordPress or any aspect of the project, join in the tradition of giving thanks by means of commenting. Tell us what it is your thankful for as it relates to WordPress.
