What do you enjoy most about working in WordPress?
It is really difficult to single-out only one thing. I have two, actually.
First of all its the people – I love meeting and networking with everyone within the ecosystem. I get inspired by the feedback and ideas that everyone has. It motivates me to build stuff with Hostinger and deliver value.
Second of all its the whole idea of making the internet more accessible and helping people use the power of it.
What do you love most about your Post Status membership?
Once again, the community – lots of action, insights and initiatives are going on in here. I am still starting my journey at Post Status. I would love to get more involved as the time goes by.
What business/web/WordPress advice do you have for others in our industry?
Be brave, ask questions, talk to people. At the beginning, things might look complicated and unclear. It all fades away once you start building those “human” connections. I highly advise everyone not to repeat my mistake of being a silent observer – dive in right away and prepare to have loads of fun along the way
