A little backlogged is all I have to say – it was a very busy weekend for me and I’m just finally catching up on work that was supped to get done late last week. This happens on occasion and thankfully no ones breathing down my neck to get my stuff done – I create all the pressure I need on my own! Hopefully you had a great weekend and are looking at an awesome week this week!
This is your WordPress weekend roundup – blog posts that we couldn’t entertain fully in the past week but that might still be worth your time. We spend our weekend curating this list so that you don’t have to! We hope that by spending a few hours (or more than a few hours) that we save hundreds if not thousands of our own community’s time! It is an opportunity we can’t pass up! And at this point we’ve done over 20 of these at this point! Ready? Here we go!
Chris Lema, pioneer of “done done” lets us pick his brain a bit with a few questions. He’s passionate about WordPress, developing business models (he could actually help you in this particular area), and is both an entrepreneur and leader within his own organization. In a nutshell, there’s a lot to learn from this cat, and we wanted to capture some time with him when we can (because he’s pretty busy). Without further delay, Chris Lema, our WPOI (Word Person of Interest), interviewed by Drew Poland:
Crazy week, right? It’s been one for the record books for me personally as I’ve been attempting to finalize a Kickstarter campaign and project that has pretty much hijacked my entire life. At some point I’ll have a massive retrospective, but I’m exhausted with only a day or so to go. But naturally there’s been more news than just Kickstarter project – here are some of the things that happened this previous week that you may not have gotten to see. Oh, and by the way, make sure you’re aware of the big super bot that’s attempting to access your […]
Yet another incredibly busy week for us at WP Daily and the rest of the 8BIT team – as much as we hate to admit it, we’re still somewhat recovering from WordCamp Atlanta that finished a few weeks ago – all those calls and meetings and things that we had hoped to get done were pushed back and we’re finally knocking them out, one-by-one. But we’ll get there. I’m sure of it. Without further ado, here’s a look at the past week and some of the stories that we weren’t able to cover explicitly:
One of the biggest challenges for freelancers and contractors, even us WordPressers, is making sure that we’re charging the right amount for the work that we get done. There are tons of strategies and even tools out there for those that are looking to figure out that “sweet spot” for project pricing but to be quite honest, there’s nothing better than just experience. But before you walk through the fire and flames where you may get burned for under-charging for your awesome skills, you may want to have Chris Lema and James Dalman (“Dalema”) take you under their wing for a […]
Show Notes Host Chris Lema started using WordPress in 2005 because of how user-friendly it is for customers. He’s still active in the WordPress community—consulting with different companies to help them think through strategy. Chris attends about 6 WordCamps a year, in addition to starting his own WordPress events. One such event is in Cabo, where folks can spend time relaxing in villas while talking shop about WordPress. He is also the creator of WPwatercooler, one of the more popular WordPress weekly shows. You can contact Chris on Twitter @chrislema, or on his website. Host intro In the last few months we’ve seen several […]
It’s been an insane week – and it’s been nothing short of a miracle. Finishing our Epic Gaming Mural, Holding our Jelly Event, organizing and finishing out WordCamp Atlanta (and the VIP after party), launching a Kickstarter Campaign, and managing all the other “normal” things in life – yikes, it’s just been insanity! We’ve been getting a few hours of sleep each night, if we’re lucky. As you can see, Chris is trying to recover… at 8:00am in the morning. But without further ado, here you go:
Yikes. It’s been a busy Saturday and I’m finally getting around to compiling our weekly review of content that we didn’t get to cover explicitly over the last 7 days. In a good way I’m glad as I spent most of my time today with family. Soccer games, a date with one of my daughters, and then the park with my other one has left me spent. I hope your weekend has been as eventful as mine already as well!
Hope you guys had a great week! It’s already into March, can you believe it? We’re nearly 25% of the way through 2013. Someone pinch me, seriously, because it’s moving way too fast. Here’s your weekly rundown of what you may have missed that wasn’t explicitly covered here on WP Daily. Let us know if we missed anything or if we need to subscribe to a particular blog and what not! I think you should at least take a look at #3, $22, #24, and #26. Those are must-reads, especially #24 on remote management.
