Virtual Volunteerism

The Daily Post

“We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.”

Author Cynthia Ozick’s words ring a resounding bell for me. Since reading them, I’ve made it a priority to show appreciation for the people that positively impact my life.

I am a Happiness Engineer on the Community Team. It is our job to staff the forums, but we aren’t alone out there. We have volunteers who spend invaluable time and energy assisting users of all experience levels. They don’t do it for a paycheck. They do it because they’re passionate about WordPress.com, and because they have an innate drive to support the people who create, manage, and contribute to blogs and websites. Although they work with little concern for accolades, I wanted to publicly thank the volunteers in the WordPress.com forums for their assistance. 

“Wherever a man turns he can find someone who needs him.”
