There is something really satisfying about helping someone solve an issue on the WordPress Support Forums. By blogging a helpful article, you get a bit of applause, some criticism, feedback, and often a lot of support questions, but there’s something special about reaching out to individuals crying for help. I find it much more satisfying.
Try this sometimes. You’ll be fascinated by how different facets of WordPress you’ll still have to learn after reading people’s requests for help.
