It’s Thanksgiving! Most of us will celebrate Thanksgiving by stuffing ourselves with turkey and watching football before heading out the door looking for the best Black Friday deals.
Traditionally, Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for the harvests our good fortune has brought us. I want to take this time to thank everyone for our good fortune at Range. We would not have been successful without the continued support from our friends, our wonderful clients, the WordPress community, and our families.
I had worked as a freelancer for years, and had the pleasure of working with Sara and Aaron on some projects. We talked about starting an agency, but it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our friends who believed in us. They encouraged us to start Range and I’m really thankful to them.
We’ve had the chance to work with some amazing clients. Projects such as personal blogs for Scott Berkun and Kristin Luna and custom plugins or sites for Google, Automattic, Ooyala, Daylife, SocialFlow and VentureBeat. We are grateful to these wonderful companies for believing in us and choosing to work with us.
Range was also honored to be invited to join Automattic’s WordPress.com VIP Featured Service Partners program just as we were getting ready to file for incorporation. At Range, we work closely with the VIP team for delivering custom solutions for our clients. We owe a debt of gratitude to Matt, Raanan, Paul, Mo, Daniel, Alex and JJJ at Automattic for their support.
Range wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for WordPress and the wonderful community. I would personally like to thank all core developers, contributors, handbook and codex contributors, WordCamp and meetup organizers, and users. WordPress wouldn’t be successful without your contributions.
