You might have noticed that I am trying, with some recent success, to write or at least link to things I think are interesting each day. It’s possible you saw me say this recently:
Hey so I just discovered that I really like WordPress and really like writing again.

I realized that in my daily work, I’m in with WordPress 100%. I’m looking at the Dashboard, I’m digging in to the guts of it as best I can, and I’m just using it. All. Day. Long.
When that happens, it’s easy for me to forget that I have this platform here that is enabling the people I’m working with to do really amazing things—and it enables me to say stuff, too. I understand why it’s difficult for people who work with WordPress technically to keep up a regular blog; by the end of the day, it’s kind of hard to look at it and be creative with your own thoughts.
I sat down to write something longer for the first time in a long while, and then wrote that tweet not long after. There are things you shouldn’t have to rediscover.
Speaking your mind, sharing your interests, and dogfooding what you work with every day aren’t among them.
