Fresh WP Goodness...

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.

Our latest nonsense...

14 – The development of Page Builders with Doug Belchamber

Today we are joined by Doug Belchamber for a chat about the development of page builders. Naturally, we’re huge Beaver Builder fans so this episode is very much inspired by the Alpha release of “Beaver Themer”.

In this, episode 13 of the WP Builds podcast, we take a slightly different direction! We have Hani Mourra on, telling us about his experiences building a WordPress plugin in the podcasting space.

12 – Top five tools that we cannot live without

This week David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley discuss the 5 tools that they could not live without.
This is not supposed to be some sensationalist list that makes you want to go out and buy things! Rather, it’s just the tools that we’ve settled upon after trying out quite a few over the years.

11 – The feast and famine cycle of a web developer

In this episode of the WP Builds podcast Nathan Wrigley and David Waumsley talk about the feast / famine cycle of being a freelancer.
Of course, we don’t have the answers, but we we are experimenting with approaches.

10 – Work / Life balance

In this episode of the WP Builds podcast, David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley discuss the subject of work / life balance.
What time of the day do you start work, and what time do you stop? Perhaps you work around your family commitments, or do the family have to work around you?

9 – Promoting a web design business

In this, episode 9 of the WPBuilds podcast, David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley discuss the topic of promoting a web design business. Being the non-experts that they both are, they do some of the things that they talk about. Most of the ideas are things that they’ve heard about, but don’t do!

8 – Shiny new toys

David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley explore the notion of “shiny new things”. This is when you buy things that, perhaps, you don’t need, just because it is new and you don’t have it!
We find out that Nathan is a complete sucker for buying things that he does not need, will not use, and perhaps does not even want.

7 – Web site care plans

In this, the 7th episode of the WP Builds podcast, David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley discuss web site care plans. We discuss what we both do to create recurring / passive revenue for our web design businesses, what works and what does not.
There’s so much to this topic, support requests, backups, security…

Well this is a good episode, we think.
This week, we’ve got two of the founders of the Beaver Builder plugin for WordPress, Justin Busa and Robby MuCullough on the the show.

5 – How to make money from WordPress

It’s episode 5 of the WP Builds podcast, and, honestly, who’d have thought that we’d get this far?
This week we drone on about ‘How to make money from WordPress’, seeing as we’re both fantastically wealthy!!!

4 – Web developers from hell

In episode 4 of the WP Builds podcast, David Waumsley and Nathan Wrigley discuss the role of the web developer and how we can sometimes be a thorn in the side of clients.
We know that dealing with clients can be painful, but what about us? Do we always do the right thing by our clients?

3 – Clients from heaven (not)

In episode 3 of the WPBuilds.com podcast Nathan Wrigley and David Waumsley discuss clients and what it is about them that makes them so great.
We’ve come up with 13 stereotypical client types and explain more about what we think of them.

Lion tamer and liar

I travel, help people make websites and bang on about Beaver Builder on YouTube. I got a silver badge for swimming aged 11.

The designer in me says there should be more words here.
