Why Do You Use WordPress?
I use WordPress for myself and my clients. My clients are increasing wanting to become more and more involved in their websites. Keeping content fresh, uploading images, blogging etc.
When and How Did You Start Using WordPress?
I started using WordPress full time in 2007 when I launched the redesign of Trailer Trash Design’s website.
What Tips or Resources would you recommend to a new WordPress User?
One tip I give to people all time is to not get frustrated early on. People expect to be able to jump in with both feet and make great things happen with their websites but soon get frustrated with the learning curve. Time and patience will make those great things happen… don’t get frustrated.
What advice would you give someone who’s building a business around WordPress design or development?
How do you stay informed about WordPress (news, tips, etc)?
I stay informed by attending WordCamps. As many as I can attend or speak at… I’m for it. I also attend our local meetup meetings. I also cruise the internet looking for new things happening with WP.
What do you like most about WordCamps?
Meeting new people. I always go WordCamps knowing I’m going to learn… but I’m always surprised at just how much I learn. I’ve met some really great people at WordCamps and have made many fantastic friends.
