The entire order of judgment or contradiction is in your mind. Like a mind can choose to be optimistic or pessimistic.
Your thinking is very dogmatic. The moment you come out of the locked thinking of that "Building resume(certificates, degrees etc) and working for the corporate" is the only thing you can do in life you will not have the exploratory mind.
Wordpress itself is estimated to be billions of dollar of Industry and WordPress has a huge share of empowering websites(between 25% to 37% of the total website that exists) as such it opens the huge entrepreneurial prospect who can trap such opportunities.
If you will look at the perspective with only one possibility "job" then you will come out with such adjectives as:
1. Low Paid
2. Under Paid
3. Hot(Java/.Net) etc
I have seen this problem with many of my friends who can't think beyond 9-5 job;. they can't think beyond building a resume and shifting from one company to another. I have left that suffocating life, and walked miles now. I could not waste my precious life in that 9-5 job wearing a tag of a company in my neck that was killing my life force and suffocating my existence.
It's not that I am making fun of such people as everyone has his/her choices, but before being so Judgemental open up your mind and realize the Low quality/ High quality is in your mind. All your locked thinking is coming form because you have never explored any option in life other than working for corporate firms.
Open up your locked mind and do some google, and find out the Potential of how much possibility is Wordpress offering as a product-driven Industry.
One good product, and if it is a Hit → It can at least make you a millionaire(that doesn't happen overnight, but with a keen eye on details and with a lot of patience and enthusiasm), and spice up the journey for the future entrepreneurial endeavor.
P.S. → Anyways I didn't want to give a speech here because this forum is not a fit for that. I only wanted to convey don't be judgemental and open up your mind to explore the World around you(Only If you have developed your mind to be exploratory with years of critical thinking).
How to be successful →
I said so much not to insult you. I just want to make a point don't be judgemental so fast. Try to explore thing with an open and critical mind.
