The Blog’s Popularity
As you would expect, with great content and services comes some great PR. The WP Mayor is well known in the WordPress community and this is in no small part down to the large efforts we have made to contribute to the community in any way possible.
This is what keeps us at the forefront of the WordPress world and what motivates us to keep improving and building upon our successes.

Together with financial benefits, we also get personal benefits from running and maintaining this blog, but this might not be what you think…
We all love what we do, and with that comes a level of personal fulfilment. So much so that this blog was not created as a source of income, but rather as a way of keeping a small community up to date with the latest in WordPress.
It then kept growing and over the past 4 years has developed into what it is today.
