I spent a year working at WordPress.com in order to learn their secrets.
Surprisingly, they were happy about this: they granted permission, before I was hired, to write a book about my experience. That book, called The Year Without Pants, launches today.
It follows my amazing year as one of the first managers in the history of Automattic, the company that runs WordPress.com.
It’s a fascinating story for any blogger, and Copyblogger was kind enough to let me share some of the lessons I learned.
