Commenting on the awards initiative, Mitika Kulshreshtha, Vice President of Marketing, Bluehost, said, “Past year has been tough for many. Even with financial constraints and uncertainty, over 58% of our customers told us in a survey earlier this year that they are positive they will survive and thrive beyond the pandemic. At Bluehost, we are in awe of this spirit of resilience and creativity. We also love WordPress, which continues to be the most popular content management system (CMS) to create websites. So, we combined the two to define the mission of Bluehost Creator Awards. We want to celebrate and recognize the best talent who has created a website, a project or any tool on WordPress this past year that is symbolic of victory during tough times. Tell us your story of innovation and creativity and inspire legions to do the same.”
