CSS-Tricks

June 2009 - Present

I am one of a couple people that help moderate the CSS-Tricks Forum. More than simply clearing the forum of spam, I am the resident WordPress expert and try to answer as many questions as possible.

It's an incredibly rewarding experience due to the vast number of people you can help. It's the first place I recommend for people to post questions to!

CSS-Tricks is run by Chris Coyier (twitter) - he's awesome.
