Hey everyone – just a reminder that tomorrow is Unofficial International WordPress Day, one day out of the year when we celebrate WordPress and everything that’s been built around it. We’ve also got an awesome contest going on tomorrow with 20 great giveaways that include premium themes, plugins, and more. To make it easier for you to participate, we’ve changed the rules a bit.
Before, we were asking you to post a blog entry about why you love WordPress, thanking Automattic, etc. We decided that was a little much to ask, so we’ve made it super easy for you to win one of our prizes. Simply leave a comment on the official page expressing your love for WordPress, how it’s helped your business, thanking Automattic, etc. and you’ll be entered into the contest. It’s that easy! We’ve got all these awesome prizes, and we want to make sure everyone has an easy and fair chance to enter.
So what are you waiting for? Head on over to the Unofficial International WordPress Day page and leave your comment now!
The second thing is pertaining to Automattic and the entire WordPress community. As you all know, WordPress is free and open-source, and there are many people behind the scenes working their asses off simply because they love WordPress. With that said, we’re asking you to please join us in donating to WordPress. These folks really deserve it. It doesn’t have to be a huge amount – in fact, any amount will do – but not only will it help them out, it’ll also show how much we appreciate all they’ve done.
