Sheesh, Chris. You’re talking like a gutted tauntaun.
We are hosting a party to celebrate the 10th anniversary of WordPress here in Atlanta, and our space is filling up! This is going to be a great opportunity to connect with WordPress users, designers, and developers in our city.

Let’s face it… Being a contributing citizen of the Internet is tough.
It’s nothing short of bravery to hop online every day and mash the publish button or keep plugging away on a project.
Think of all the risk we take in doing what we do, day in and day out.
- Sharing your code in an open source project, which is probably the most vulnerable thing a developer can do.
- Working on a project and bringing an idea you’ve had tucked away for months or years to life, only to be scooped by someone releasing something nearly identical to yours days or weeks ahead of you.
- Pouring your heart and sole into a blog post with the simple goal of wanting to share or help, only to be derailed by unkind comments.
- Working diligently to push your company or business forward, only to be blocked by leaders who are not on board or corporate polotics.
And the list could go on and on. So why do we put ourselves through the trouble time and again? Isn’t it easier to just let go and let someone else deal with it?
It wounds me when you call it a hat.
This is my son diving into a pile of bean bags.
I love having an office where I can bring my family. Yesterday was cleanup day at the office and I brought my three kids, ages 8, 5, and 3. Between the Wii, standup arcade, box full of toys, multiple dry-erase and chalk-friendly surfaces, and yummy treats… we were able to hang out there for 5 hours.
Blurring the line between work and play has serious advantages.
I have an inexplicable yearning in my bones to solve worthy problems and I have a hunch that I’m not alone in feeling this way. Some days I pause long enough to ask myself, “why?”, but most days I’m too busy pawing through my list of undone things to noodle on such existential musings.
I’m so easily consumed with the unimportant distractions before me.
With every release Standard’s code is becoming more articulate, more robust, better documented, and (we hope) overall more appealing to web designers & developers. We keep improving Standard to be a fast, light, purposeful WordPress theme that is easy and fun to customize.
But what if you’re not a web designer? How can you customize Standard? Easy! Connect with one of our preferred partners.
I need confirmation of nudity before I commit to this.
Your work area should be fertile soil for inspiration. It should BEG you to capture your ideas, even if they aren’t all that valuable in the beginning. They are still a necessary step in the road to success.
We think our work area is pretty damn inspirational. It invites us to relax, enjoy work, and be creative. Of course we haven’t been completely satisfied, so lately we’ve been enhancing our work area to make it easier to both collaborate and communicate ideas, concepts, and theories to one another.
To accomplish this worthy task we grabbed blackboard (chalk) and whiteboard (dry erase) paint and went to work.
Pictures? Yes, I have pictures. Get your Pinterest finger ready.
