Enabling the community to easily write and release plugins for use with Gatsby is an absolute hammer of an idea. It gives Gatsby enthusiasts like myself a way to easily get started with open source by providing a solid foundation for us to build on. Then, once you’ve got the plugin basics down you can really let your imagination run wild. This is the story of how I combined my interest in markdown / MDX with the Gatsby plugin ecosystem to contribute a brand new open source plugin, `gatsby-mdx-embed`. And now I'm looking for #hacktoberfest contributions to help the project reach its first major milestone, a stable v1.0.0 release.
