The Best Thing about WordPress

Today I turn 45. The day after Thanksgiving. And I'm thankful for many things…

WordPress powers 25% of the web

If you missed it, the new data is out, and WordPress—the open-source software that makes it easy to build websites and blogs—powers 25% of the web. That's pretty awesome if you've been a part of building up the software, the commercial ecosystem and the community around it.

But that's not what I'm most thankful for (especially since it's the day after Thanksgiving).

Here's the best part of WordPress

It's the community. The relationships. The friendships—and the memories that come from a year hanging out with great friends.
