Hello Dolly: Episode 2 – Publishing Platforms, Interns, and Popovers

The team’s been having a lot of fun recordingĀ Hello Dolly and we’re stoked about the comments, emails, tweets, and phone calls we’ve been receiving (yes, even the pranks!).

In this episode, John, Chris, Jared, and I all sit down to talk about the upcoming WordCamp Atlanta, some of our thoughts on other publishing platforms (such as Tumblr and Svbtle), and take a call from Chris Brogan about pop overs and permission based marketing.

For a a more detailed recap, be sure to review the show notes and check out the links we’ve provided; otherwise, listen up, tune in, or do whatever you need to do to get WordPress in those earholes.

Show Notes

  • WordCamp Atlanta will be held at the Loudermilk Center, and the after party is going to be held at the 8BIT / WP Daily office. All of us on the team are aiming to present.
  • Chris defines Tweep-To-Peep moments.
  • We talk about A, Svbtle, Medium, and more as well as the pros-and-cons of using, evaluating, and comparing what other publishing platforms are doing in comparison and contrast to WordPress.
  • Remember to give us a call at 1-832-DAILYWP
  • Jason Bradley, the newest 8BIT intern, celebrated his birthday this week so wish him a Happy Birthday!
  • We’re also looking at some blogging interns for WP Daily as well as what the position looks like and how we work.
  • We received several prank calls on the show (which was a lot of fun) – perhaps we’ll even make an episode out of it.
  • Chris Brogan gave us a call about pop-over advertisements and we all chat about our opinions about it, and give a hat tip to Orman Clark and his approach to this.
  • Selling IsĀ Persuasion, Not Force

    Listening now. Just got to the part about interns and being able to sit and hangout with people. This can’t be emphasized enough. I’m a 1 man web development shop (part of a larger company) and while that sounds nice, and at times it is, I would really like to work with a good group of like minded individuals to bounce ideas off of. To check my work/coding etc. I like the idea of telecommuting, but I think it lacks something as well.

      Completely agree, Christian! I’ve been telecommuting for about 2 years now, and no matter what steps you take it never has the same feel as working “with” people. I think the best solution is something of a hybrid with regular in-person work days.
