I recently interviewed Mark Szymanski for an upcoming WP Minute+ episode, where we explored the opportunities to contribute back to WordPress for “newcomers” like him.

Does it always have to be with code? WordCamps? Chatting in GitHub issues?

Or can it be through content like this, where we support and encourage the use of WordPress through the content we’re creating. There’s a host of ways to go about creating content that achieves this:

  • Blogging
  • YouTube
  • Podcasting
  • Newsletters
  • Social

Or a grab bag of it all, like we do here.

I know I’m bias, but I do feel like if you’re consistently creating content, even if it’s for a narrow part of the WordPress space, you’re doing your part to help WordPress thrive — and that’s one of our goals, isn’t it?

So the message today is quite simple: If you’re looking for ways to give back to WordPress, maybe start blogging again. If you want to educate users on new ways of design, development, or simply “how to WordPress” then YouTube could be for you. If you have strong opinions about a topic near and dear to you — start that newsletter.
