WordPress really is an amazing platform, with a huge wealth of online information to help newbie users quickly become competent — there are a number of great resources out there, including the one you’re reading now! As great as the online material is, nothing beats attending a WordPress event, though. Not only do you get a rare opportunity to learn from the industry leaders in person, but you also get the chance to meet and collaborate with like-minded people. This makes them great places to learn the information needed to become a proficient WordPress user, launch a WordPress-related business, or […]
Like with most great things in the WordPress community, it started with WebDev Studios. Two founders, writing code and sometimes writing books. And a friend of theirs, Lisa Sabin-Wilson, also writing some code and writing books. And then they merged. If you were at Pressnomics this past year, you heard Lisa’s version of the story. And it was compelling. And I’m sure it made more than one small company think about its own position in the ecosystem. Should they partner with someone else? Should they merge? But how do you go about doing this? The questions were plentiful, I’m sure. […]
Pressnomics 2.0 is underway and their formula has, once again, demonstrated what’s critical about events like these. When you put on a business conference for the WordPress ecosystem, one thing is more important than anything else. And no, it’s not the speaker selection. It’s not about speakers. Speakers are important. I really like good speakers. Heck, this year I was one of them. But speakers create a one-way information exchange. That’s nice, but truly secondary. No, what Josh & Sally Strebel really understand about putting on a business conference for the WordPress ecosystem is that two-way information exchange is most […]
I hope you are having a very chill and relaxed weekend as we walk into the 4th of July week! Many of you are probably traveling this week and I hope you travel well and safely. Perhaps most importantly is that you can get offline and just enjoy family, life, and other such things that are vastly more important than *gasp* WordPress! Hahaha!
It’s that time again! Let’s just jump right in – you’ve got a weekend to take advantage of and so do I – like do nothing, that’s what! Just kidding. “Weekend,” what is that?!
What a week. And, can you actually believe that we’re in the month of June already? 2013 is about half-way done already. So, the question is, have you accomplished everything that you had set out to do in 2013? Are you slacking? Get to it!
Pressnomics is just 5 months or so away and it’s already getting exciting! They shared recently that they had sent out a few select invitations to a few WordPressers out there that were making a huge difference in the WordPress economy and I’ve already seen a select number of people via Twitter get there’s. Look, I’ll be honest, I was jealous for a moment (because I’m human, like you), but it was cool, you know, I’m cool with it. And then I got one myself and it was as if the very world blossomed before my eyes – I’m pretty sure […]
Pressnomics, one of the few events that focus exclusively on WordPress and business, is fast approaching and the invitations are being sent out as we speak – in fact, you may already have them if you’re close by and local to Josh and his team. It’s open to everyone but there are some people and organizations that they are trying to explicitly encourage to show up at the event: While the event is open to all WordPress-centric business owners, we feel it is important to try to ensure specific people are in attendance: Those that are actively shaping and driving […]
We’ve all been waiting very patiently for the dates to officially be announced for PressNomics, an intimate gathering with a unique focus on the business-side of WordPress, and it’s finally been announced! PressNomics 2 will be held October 17-19 2013 in Phoenix Arizona: Tempe Mission Palms 60 E 5th St. Tempe, AZ 85281
And Pagely will show you how. We recently got an interesting care package from them and we weren’t quite sure what to expect. If it was something dangerous I at least wanted to capture it on film so as to provide proof of the source. Fortunately it was anything but dangerous – except for that mustache that I tried to get Chris to wear. Darn it – he almost did. Pagely (which is sporting a sweet new homepage look) has successfully bribed us to take images and a video of their company and products thus spawning a blog post. Those guys know how to win.
