Your Virtual Event is not a WordCamp

A topic that’s come up for me multiple times over the last six months iswhether or not speakers should be paid. I had a debate with Nathan Wrigley about it at the end of last year. That debate was based on an article I wrote back in October called, “We need to talk about speakers and virtual events.” But beyond paying speakers, we need to treat them with decency. We need to value their time and not treat them like they are just here to serve us and our cause. And that’s what we’re talking about today.

Who is Full Site Editing For?

When WordPress 5.0 and the block editor came out, though it was off to a rocky start, the value proposition was clear: THIS is a better experience for content creation than the Classic Editor. After all, that experience was largely unchanged for 15 years. But now that 5.9 is out, we need to ask: is the value proposition for Full Site Editing as clear?

Are WordPress-Specific Platforms Viable Products?

Talk to any business owner worth their salt and they'll likely tell you that you need to pick a niche. This can be a niche in a product, like ConvertKit. It could be a niche in a market, like serving single parents who work from home. But lately I've been wondering if a niche near and dear to my heart is a actually a good one, and that's WordPress.
