Introducing Longreads’ Best of WordPress

Interesting

The WordPress.com Blog

Today we’re excited to launch a new series with Longreads, the storytelling community that recently joined the Automattic and WordPress.com Editorial family. And we need your help.

We’re looking for the best long-form stories over 1,500 words, across all of WordPress—a quest that will span 22% of the Internet. It will include work from undiscovered writers, as well as the authors and publishers you already know and love.

Help us find and share the best stories

Authors and publishers: When you post something great that’s over 1,500 words, use the longreads tag on your post so we can consider it. You can also share a link to the story on Twitter: Just reply to @Longreads or include #longreads in your tweet. (If your WordPress site is self-hosted, Twitter is still the best way to reach us.)

Readers: If you find something that you love, share it with us!…

Jumping on the running horse of opportunities

"She had an unequalled gift... of squeezing big mistakes into small opportunities" 
 Henry James
My mom always said that " opportunities are like a running horse and if you don't jump on it the horse won't come back" so sometimes the horse is running and you don't jump because you are too scared and you are measuring the risks. It's ok though because maybe it wasn't meant to be but sometimes you have to risk it a little bit and create more opportunities. In my view that is the only way to make the most out of life.
