The Importance of Writing

Matt Mullenweg, the creator of WordPress and CEO of Automattic runs a billion-dollar company and spoke a little about how he values writing himself but also in the employees that he hires in a piece from Inc.

Why is knowing how to write well so important at Automattic?

Skill in writing is one of the things I look for the most in hiring, because I feel that clear writing represents clear thinking, regardless of someone’s background, or whether they’re a designer or coder or whatever.

The ability to communicate effectively and clearly in written form is not only super important in a distributed company, but I think reflects well on how they approach life in general.

Part of the reason I started blogging and started working on WordPress was because I love writing.

If I can become a better writer, perhaps I can become a better thinker.
