The WordPress song

Ladies and gentlemen of the class of 2022

Use WordPress.

If I could offer you only one tip for the future, WordPress would be it

The long-term benefits of WordPress have been proved by SEO’s

Whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable

than my own meandering experience, I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your blogging, oh, never mind

You will not understand the power of blogging until you found Twitter

but trust me, in 2 years, you’ll look back

At photos of yourself and recall in a way, you can’t grasp now why you put them up on Snapchat.

You are not as popular as you imagine.

Don’t worry about the RSS feed, WordPress takes care of that

Or know that worrying is as effective as trying to get off Instagram.

The real troubles in your social media life are apt to be things that never downloaded properly on your Oneplus phone or

the kind that blindsides you at the Websummit early on Tuesday.

Delete one app every day that scares you.


Don’t be reckless with comments on other people’s blogs.

Don’t put up with people who are reckless on yours.


Don’t waste your time on Bebo

Sometimes you’re friended, sometimes you’re poked.

Your blog is long and in the end, you can crosspost to Facebook.

Integrate Google apps to your WordPress blog if you succeed in doing this, tell me how.

Fav kind tweets, Block hideous trolls.


Accept certain inalienable truths.

Browsers will crash, Spotify used to be for music, U2 will get old

and when they do, you’ll remember that when you were a noob

Tariff plans were horrendous, broadband was slow

And children got the hand-me-downs.

Respect quiet carriages on trains.

Don’t mess too much with themes

Or install too many plugins, please think of your users.

Be careful of the Amazon purchases you buy, but be patient with those who deliver them. Life online is part of our everyday life. We have responsibilities to others in the way we conduct our social interactions and remember it is all for all to see. Leave a positive digital footprint.

But trust me on WordPress.
