Smashing Magazine published a very interesting article on Thursday about the current state of the WordPress economy. I hadn’t heard this term before but it makes perfect sense – it’s the thousands of people worldwide that are benefiting from WordPress’ free, open-source software, making a living doing things like designing themes, creating plugins, developing sites or consulting. Well worth a look if you’re a WordPress professional at any level.
For me, I’d classify myself as a designer/site developer/consultant/trainer, in that order. Where do YOU fit in? Are you a freelancer? Designer? Developer or programmer? Consultant? Trainer? How much of your income is based on your WordPress-related work?
