    Hey Justin,

    This is fantastic news! I’m so happy for you.

    Like you, I’ve had a deep interest in journalism. I even worked at the Associated Press as a product manager and co-created the Reese Felts Digital Newsroom at UNC Chapel Hill to teach the next generation of journalism students the digital tools and techniques required for today’s news, including an intense focus on WordPress. It was there I founded WordPress Chapel Hill, which I ran for 7-years.

    If your passion is writing and journalism, then securing a position to write from experience about advancements in and the economy of WordPress is surely a great place to be. I’m hopeful WP Tavern focuses not just on the tech side, but also on the personalities behind some of the best tech in WordPress, as well as the economics of WordPress. I think WP Tavern fell a little short of connecting WordPress with opportunity and the business of WordPress – it’s there that needs some attention.

      Congrats Justin! I’ve used tons of your code and was a theme hybrid member. Just liked the way your brain worked.

      I remember years ago finding your “other” life as a writer. Hoping your deep commitment to WP continues to be rewarded.
