Every day I wake up thankful that I get to go to work as a Happiness Engineer at Automattic. Who can say that after 4+ years on a job? It’s so true. The WordPress community is amazing, and I get to meet other members of the community and help them build dream sites and troubleshoot issues. If problems are discovered, I get to be part of the process for a solution. While I’m supposed to be providing happiness, I am almost always the receiver. Just saying.
This image of this storefront has nothing to do with my job, aside from the word “Happiness,” which I loved. Oh, and it was taken while I was in Perugia, Italy, working at a conference. Super great trip!
At our last company meetup in Orlando we were given these pens with our Slack handles on them. I’m glad I use my name 🙂 The pens are so awesome, I’ve started journaling. I had almost forgotten how to actually use a pen and paper… I love how it has the name of the company I so enjoy working for on it, too.
At that same meetup, we enjoyed munching on these candy bars. The ingredients cracked me up:
I am so thankful for my job and for WordPress.

I love your job title, too. It must be fun telling people you meet that you’re a “happiness engineer.”
I love it. The job and being able to say that 🙂
