A Belated Musical Farewell

I left Automattic at the end of March 2016, with a short farewell note to everyone I’ve got to know and work with during my 4+ years at the company.

At the time, I attempted to write a longer, more thoughtful, farewell note, but could not. To my surprise, Automatticians wrote many sweet comments in response.

They remembered when and how we met. They wrote thankful and kind words. The fact that I was surprised and that I still can’t bring myself to re-read the comments probably says a lot about… the cultural conditioning,the imposter syndrome, my personal issues? Give me a couple of decades, and I’ll figure it out.

Since March, I have wanted to write about what WordPress community, working at Automattic, and eventually leaving, have meant to me. I am still coming up short for words, so I have a song for you instead.

  1. I completely missed your goodbye post! I guess that happens when you’re in two vastly different time zones and teams.

    Thank you so much for encouraging me to apply at Automattic! I probably would have never considered it had you not already blazed the trail!
