January 21, 2017 — The Path to Success with WordPress: Business, Blogging and Community
WordPress is software like no other. Every fourth website you encounter was built using it. Creative skills are mastered with it. Businesses harness its versatility. It has the power to bring together people from diverse backgrounds. Yet to so many, it’s “just” software. As a blogger, web designer, marketer, educator, and entrepreneur since long before its existence, I’ve watched it grow into a worldwide phenomenon. My own path to success is intertwined with a decade of WordPress use. Clearly, there’s more to this software than just a free install.

August 25, 2016 — How to Build a Table; How to Change a Car’s Oil; How Cook a Turkey; search for these and you will find countless of YouTube videos on each of these topics. People share their knowledge in hopes that it will be helpful to others. As a result, lots of people know how to build tables, change oil, and cook turkeys. But what if that information wasn’t shared? What if only one company made all of the tables and knew how to make tables? That’s kind of how software development is, unless that software is Open Source like WordPress.
