I’ve been thinking a bit about my posts on this blog and elsewhere. So I spent a few minutes and counted them. My contributions in 2011 to various communities are below:
Contributions I’m pretty happy about
WPCandy Posts: 74 – I want to write these more consistently in 2012, but maybe not more. Definitely more in-depth and substantial when I do. Total post count on WPCandy is actually 100(nice milestone!), since September 2011.
WPCandy Podcasts: 15 – I hope to double this in 2012
WPCandy First Tastes: 4 + 1 unpublished – This is a fun little project. I’d like to do these a good bit as long as people are enjoying them.
Krogsgard.com: 25 – I want to triple this.
Theme Hybrid: 150-180 forum posts – Probably my most visited website. Kind of difficult to nail down the exact number, but this is close based on paginated archives on my profile page.
WordPress Stack Exchange: 0 – I definitely need to change this. I rely on it a great deal, but was slow learning in how to utilize the system.
WP.org forums: 4 – This speaks for itself in how pathetic it is. Going to start posting here more often when I come across things that are easy to help or I have input on an existing thread.
trac: 0 – One of my 2012 goals is to get myself on the 3.4 contributors list.
I’m happy with my contributions to the WordPress community. However, I have plans to make these contributions better in 2012, and even a trick or two up my sleeve for other places and ways to write about WordPress.
