Have you ever heard of WordPress? Today I’d like to share my WordPress story with you. The first time I came in contact with was due to my human’s work. They run a niche WordPress theme shop called Anariel Design. From the very beginning, I found their job very interesting as they are doing lots of creative tasks. They are working from home, which means I can spend the whole day together with them. I started helping them by doing some small tasks and during this time I learned a lot about WordPress and became a CEO of Anariel Design 😂. You can find me here. Ok, let’s get back to the topic.
My role in WordPress
At Anariel Design I’m working on WordPress themes development. From the design part (research process and design) through the theme development. As a bear who wants to make this world a better place, I’m focussing on charities and non-profit themes. My humans and I have a passion for creating themes with an important background.
One particular theme that I worked on, is a free version of our premium theme Zeko Lite WordPress Theme. This one means a lot. It is dedicated to animals and the theme demo content tries to convey the very sad situation, in which some animal species find themselves due to the human greed and cruelty.
What is WordPress theme?
If you want to know more about WordPress and what WordPress is, check my previous article here.
Basically, the WordPress Theme is design, a “skin” for your online presence. It affects the style and look of your website. Yet, it is more than just a “skin.”. A theme includes a number of features, like typography, color scheme, layout and many other things that make up the look of your website. WordPress theme helps to convey the identity of your blog or business throughout your site in the best possible light so you can attract new clients and readers.
If you’re using WordPress as your CMS of choice it is crucial and very important to spend the time to find the right theme for your project. Each WordPress theme comes with a different design, layout, and features. At the same time every project, blog or a business is unique and has the different set of requirements for its online presence. It’s on you to choose the one that fits best to the requirements of your project. I’ll share more about WordPress themes, useful tips and links in the upcoming articles.
Why I love WordPress
WordPress is an Open Source project and the software itself is free. I love the whole movement behind it. It is there for everyone to use, learn from it and do some good stuff with it. As a big dreamer, this is something that I really love.

WordPress is not just a piece of software, it is also a family, community, friends, people who share the same interest. From my very first steps with WordPress I was pleasantly surprised how helpful people in the WordPress community can be. My humans met so many nice people and real friends through the years and I met a few as well 😂.
WordCamps…oh I love those very much. WordCamp is a conference that focuses on everything related to WordPress. WordCamps are informal, community-organized events that are put together by WordPress users like you. Everyone from casual users to core developers participate, share ideas, and get to know each other. For me and my humans this is the place where we meet our old and new friends. In April I went to the WordCamp London, that is also one of my favorite WordCamps and in June to WordCamp Europe in Belgrade. Can’t wait, I’m already so excited.
WordPress for me is a way of living. One of the ways to make the world a better place, to help and inspire others, to connect and meet new friends.
