Last year, I wrote a post on 100 WordPress influencers to follow in 2015. The list was based off who I followed before 2015. All of them, in some way or another, work to improve the WordPress community. I had the pleasure of interviewing many of them over the year.
Several commenters shared their own lists of influencers and recommendations of WordPressers to follow. I connected and followed many of these people in 2015. I also followed some hidden gems in the WordPress community who are contributing to WordPress with their amazing products and services.
2015 was a great year for WordPress community, filled with several milestones:
- WordPress is used on more than 25 percent of the Internet.
- 2015 saw four major releases.
- Automattic acquired WooThemes.
- WordCamp US became the largest WordPress event with over 1800 attendees from all over the world and even more live streaming the event.
I’m here again with a new list of 100 influencers to follow in 2016. This list comprises people who are working to improve the WordPress community and is not necessarily a collection of the most influential people involved with WordPress.
Let’s take a look at 100 WordPress influencers to follow in 2016.
