Time Marches On

And once again I’m a year older today. Funny how that keeps happening, right? This year my birthday is rather special, though.

First, it’s one year to the day since I got the email that changed my life – the email that invited me to interview for a job at Automattic, the company that runs WordPress.com, Jetpack and Woocommerce.

And directly related to that, I’m spending my birthday with my team in Whistler, Canada, where our company is having our annual meetup where all of us come together from across the world. It kinda sucks not to have the wife and kid here with me, but it’s certainly the most exciting way I’ve ever celebrated surviving another year on Earth.

Here’s to the next 35 years 😀

  1. Congratulations, Herman! Next time, bring your wife and daughter and come visit us. We’re just a hop, skip and jump away, in Eastern Washington. Not far, when you’ve already traveled clear around the planet… 🙂


    1. Thanks (and sorry for the late reply). I really want to take the wife to Whistler. But I don’t know about combining it with the meetup. It’s exhausting enough as it is 🙂 We’ll pop in if we’re in that area, though – I very much want to visit Washington State as well. Washington and Utah are the two regions of the US I most want to see.
