98 – Carrie Dils talks about why she loves WordPress and how you can use it

There are some people that you’re drawn towards aren’t there? People that you like to listen to, people that you like to read about. When I started to use WordPress a few years ago, I was constantly on the lookout for people who were producing great content that I could consume to further my understanding of how WordPress worked and of how I could make it do what I wanted it to do.I’m sure that you have your list of people who fill this criteria, the people that you want to listen to and read about? Carrie Dils is one of those people for me. She’s be creating content in the WordPress space for ages and not just that, she’s been producing a whole load of different forms of content.

97 – What is cold calling and should I be doing it with Jim Galiano?

I don’t know you, but I know for an absolute fact that I’m hopeless at marketing. I’m not very good at it and it find it really hard to do, or to get excited about. It’s a something that I’ve struggled with for a long time. I’m lucky in that I have enough work (right now) to keep me going and it comes my way largely through word of mouth. Because I’m a study in mediocrity, this is fine by me; I have not needed to market too much to keep my head above the water. But I’m hoping that you’re not as satisfied with mediocre, as I am – you’re a get-up-and-got type aren’t you? You want more out of life than I do? Well guess what, you’re going to have to market yourself in order to get, because you can be sure that competitors will.

96 – Show me my data! Query Wrangler with Jonathan Daggerhart

If you’re a regular listener to the podcast then you’ll know that I was once a heavy user of Drupal. The reason for this is simple, Drupal is really rather awesome. I know that this is a WordPress podcast, but there’s just no denying it; Drupal does heaps and heaps of stuff really well, and dare I say it… sometimes better than WordPress does! Okay, now you can put those pitchforks away, ‘cos I’m not trying to convert you over to Drupal, because, after all, I left and don’t use it anymore. Drupal has a module (aka plugin) called Views, and I’m not exaggerating to say that it’s very very very cool indeed. When I came to WordPress, I could not understand why there was nothing like Views. Something that you could point, and click at and get data out. Until I discovered Query Wrangler by Jonathan Daggerhart…

95 – What we do when a client asks for something we’ve never done before

In this episode, we return to the ‘good old days’ in which David and myself just used to drone on and on! We decided that we had not done nearly enough droning recently, and so… I give you episode 95! We go over our thoughts about how we cope when a client asks us to do something that is completely new to us. I’m guessing that we’ve all been in that meeting, or been on that call when you realise that the client is asking for something that you don’t know that you can pull out of that WordPress hat that you’ve been wearing. Perhaps it’s something that you know can be done, but you know that you’re not able to do it. Or maybe it’s something that you simply cannot understand and don’t even know where to start.

94 – How to use WP Ultimo to create your own Multisite network with Arindo Duque

I’ve often pondered the idea of setting up some kind of SaaS product, something that I could build and then turn it over to the public and they would be able to purchase it from me on a monthly basis. I think that when people do this with WordPress it’s called WaaS. Is that right? Well, one of the things that I’ve always wanted to do was to set up a system where clients could sign up to a monthly / annual website plan, pick a theme that they liked, pay and it would all be automated – done for them (and me) as if by magic. Arindo Duque has built such a thing and, honestly, it’s a little gem that you ought to explore if this idea has ever tempted you too.

THE FRESH WP GOODNESS PODCAST

Chopped up like you would chop up a carrot, or perhaps a turnip... but not with a knife, because we, erm... chop things up with our podcast. So, WP Builds is like a big choppy, podcasty knife with lovely colourful hexagons.
