As a reminder, this campaign is open to everyone in the community and even newbies!
Sé Reed, a contributor for WordPress, released a FAQ for the #WP20 From Blogs to Blocks Campaign. In it she talks about different questions one may have and how to get started. Some of the highlights include:
What is the #WP20 From Blogs to Blocks campaign?
The #WP20 From Blogs to Blocks campaign is a celebration of the 20th anniversary of WordPress. It is 20 days of small, WordPress-related actions.
How can I participate in the campaign?
Each day during the campaign, visit the WordPress Make Marketing blog, where you’ll find five WordPress-related prompts in the categories of Blogging, Developing, Designing, Photography, and Community. To participate, choose a prompt, take the designated action, and leave a comment on that day’s post linking to your action.
Do I have to do all of one kind of prompt, i.e. all the Developer prompts or all the Community prompts?
You can mix and match your actions however you like. Or create your own daily action that works for you. The goal is to celebrate WordPress: The prompts are just there to get you started.
Do I have to participate every day?
You can participate as much or as little as you’d like.
What is the deadline to participate?
The prompts will be posted daily for 20 days leading up to the WordPress 20th Anniversary on May 27, 2023. Any person who completes at least one action and shares it as a comment on one of the daily prompt posts during the 20 days of the campaign will be considered a participant in the #WP20 From Blogs to Blocks campaign.
Can I participate if I am new to the WordPress community?
Yes! Everyone is welcome to participate.
A lot of people in the community have already begun to participate!
