Blogging every day isn’t easy, but there are some people out there who manage to make it look effortless. One of those daily bloggers who has been successful at positioning himself firmly on the intersection of quantity and quality is Chris Lema.
Chris is embedded deep in the world of WordPress, and as well as blogging daily at his own site ChrisLema.com (plus regular guest posts at other first-rate blogs), he is also able to find time to speak regularly at WordCamp events around the country, and take part in a wide range of panel discussions.
However, Chris is no pro-blogger as he earns his crust as vice president of software engineering at an enterprise software solutions company. With a proper day job in place, you can see that Chris’ contributions to the WordPress community are a true labor of love.
