Do You Know Matt?

17 Jun


MattMullenwegDo you know Matt?  What if you knew his full name is Matt Mullenweg?  No?

Well, neither did I until the last hour.

I was going to WordPress‘ support page.  Just to thank the “powers that be” because I like the changes they have made in the last few days.

WordPress, and its community, is just so rewarding and user-friendly.  I mean, I’ve been managing my website for years now, and it’s been difficult to maintain.  I spend more time with the technical than I do with the writing!

When I first joined WordPress, I thought I would use it as a way to promote my website.  I really had not fully comprehended this whole “blogging” fad.

Now?  WordPress is so easy to maintain.  I do the writing, and WordPress does the heavy lifting.  And just when I think life couldn’t get easier — they go and *improve* it!  Are we WordPress bloggers spoiled or what?

I realize this sounds like a promo for WordPress, and that I’m preaching to the choir.

So, coming back to my question: Do you know Matt?  He is the WordPress developer.  He’s also responsible for Akismet – so we’re not bombarded with spam and lets us know who has visited our blog.  And Gravatar – so we can have a cute picture and we can quickly tell others a little about us.  And PollDaddy – so that if we wanted to, we could ask anything of our visitors.  And he developed a few other programs too!

So I finish with this post with a Thank You for all the work you do, Matt!

To read more about Matt? There’s no better starting point than his own About Page on his blog: “Lucky in Cards”
