Keywords: Blogging, Is WordPress a blog?, Social Network, WordPress
Many of us will read a blog or a social site on a daily basis. Approximately 5.8 million blogs are created everyday with a staggering 77% of internet users reading them everyday [Nick, G, 2019]. Lets firstly define the difference between a blog and a social network. Merriam-Webster  defines a blog as a regular feature that appears online as part of a publication that relates to a particular topic or personal commentary by one author. A social network site is defined as a dedicated website or other application that enables users to communicate with each other online [Oxford, 2020].https://isabellakidd95.wordpress.com/2020/03/12/is-wordpress-a-blog-or-social-network-site
I joined https://wordpress.slack.com a while back, mainly because apparently all of the cool WordPress people are there, using it, etc. 😎
Funny thing is: First + foremost the people who show up on the channel dedicated to help & support with using the WP Slack instance are people with help + support questions about WordPress! 😯
Then again, perhaps it isn’t quite as weird as it seems.
While I was leading the Linking together the WordPress community discussion (at WP Cafe in Berlin during the WCEU / Wordcamp Europe conference), I was amazed that most of the discussion participants were concerned with current condition of communications within the “developer” portion of the WordPress community.
It seems like there is much confusion about “community“… — throughout the WordPress community?
