I wrote an essay for HeroPress!

I was given the opportunity to contribute to HeroPress and share my WordPress story.

I’d seen Topher DeRosia speak at previous WordCamps, but we didn’t really meet until this year at WordCamp Miami 2019. I was so honored when he asked me to contribute an essay to his curated blog – HeroPress.

It was a challenging thing to write. I understood the value of being open and vulnerable in a piece like this. I wanted to take this opportunity to use my story to connect with others who are currently where I used to be.

I’m not a stranger to talking about myself, my past, or my struggles. I’m a pretty open book. But usually, I’m telling all that stuff to someone I’ve met and decided to share with. This was different – this article has been added as a link to every WordPress dashboard in the world!

So far, the feedback has been nothing but warm and positive. I hope that there is someone, somewhere, who can be touched and moved to action by what I’ve written.
