I think that the issue I have is mostly my own. I am not so great at pushing myself to interact with the WordPress community. As much as I love doing videos, recording podcasts, and whatnot, I am typically more behind the scenes, working on client work, and not so much with the connecting with people. So while I love the email newsletter, I do get a ton from other newsletters I’m subscribed to. I did get PT listed on the Covid deals page on the Post Status website, so that’s nice.
I do agree that we need to support WP projects that matter to us, not just news but all projects that are important to us. It is easy for me to forget that the WordPress project/community/industry has kept me employed for over fifteen years now.
