When and how did you get started with WordPress?

I learned basics of HTML while in Design School and started diving head first into web design. I found WP around 8 years ago while doing non-profit work. I was looking for great free solutions. I stumbled upon Joomla but then wanted something better- which lead me to find WP.

What resources do you turn to when you want to learn something new?

Google 😉

What is your favorite WordPress feature/aspect?

I love how you can customize and organize metadata so it can display beautifully on the front-end.

What is one thing you wish you knew about WordPress themes when you were getting started?

I wish I knew to not be intimidated. Once you understand the basics, it’s easy to catch on 🙂

What advice do you have for others looking to become WordPress experts?

Never stop learning. Always be curious as to why things work the way they do.

Bonus Question: What is one interesting non-WordPress-related fact about yourself?

I’m a visual artist. I love painting, drawing, and sculpture. 🙂
